London needs to become a "resilient" city to build its economic and environmental prosperity, a conference heard Saturday afternoon at the downtown branch of the London Public Library. The London Environmental Network hosted a day-long seminar Saturday at the library, featuring more than 20 speakers on a wide range of topics centred on how London can prosper from change. "We have seen a real need for developing strategies around resiliency, sustainability in the city.
Tony Demelo knew what he wanted, as soon as he took the seat. Like more than 2,000 other Londoners, the retiree cast his vote Saturday at the downtown branch of the London Public Library on how he wants to see London change. "I think this is very important to the city of London. I was born and raised here and a lot of places can use money other than the core. We all pay taxes and live here and want to see neighbourhoods we use safe and usable," said Demelo, who lives in south London.
It was cold, wet and Dundas Street a swamp of mud and construction. But 12-year-old Tyler Korven was all smiles. It's official. Christmas has begun. "This is getting into the Christmas spirit," he said, standing on Dundas street just west of Egerton, about an hour before London's Santa Claus parade was set to start at the intersection. "Its the floats, and the music " said the Glen Cairn student of why he loves the parade.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
