Female entrepreneurs are hampered by “persistent barriers” such as sexual workplace politics and inadequate access to scale-up capital, according to the first report released by a cross-border council dedicated to improving women’s economic participation.
The inside story: How Stranzl tried and failed to buy Sears CanadaAs Sears Canada’s demise draws nearer, with liquidation just over a month from completion and more than 12,000 Canadians bracing for post-holiday unemployment, a clearer picture is emerging of the failed management-led bid that was designed to save the retailer.
Toys R Us says it’s talking to possible buyers of Cdn business.
There is precedent for a Canadian subsidiary surviving its parent company’s demise - The Source is a good example - and we’re told Toys R Us Canada is in decent financial shape.
But can MGA get support for a bid?
BREAKING: Office of the Privacy Commissioner says they have now opened an investigation into Loblaw’s gift card application process after receiving a formal complaint. Commish previously told me they had simply “reached out” to Loblaw with questions. https://twitter.com/paigesellis/status/973985157219790854
Loblaw tells @BNN it asks for ID for those gift cards only when it sees a red flag. For example, if there are multiple requests for one address or for one name (or a similar name). “ID will be collected through a secure channel, verified, then destroyed.”
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".
