The 2010 Olympic host city of Vancouver, which has become the source of criticism in the international media over a string of controversies, could look like a church picnic compared to what might be in store for the world in 2014, according to an analyst with a prominent think-tank.
Pot Legalization: It’s a biggie in the land of B.C. Bud, with Vancouver now trying to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries and other cities expressing concern about stores sprouting up on their street corners once it’s legal to sell weed. This puts new Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould on the hot seat. Louie said he looks forward to a new law which, he hopes, will meet the Liberal promise to have a “strict” regime on the sale and distribution of pot.
OTTAWA — Canada is doing a lousy job of cracking down on corrupt foreigners laundering their vast ill-gotten wealth by buying high-end assets such as luxury goods, diamonds, and mansions, according to a report released Thursday.
@SunGarrioch As a Sens fan i think it's a good thing if they fall behind, because they're forced to use their skill. Once they get a lead it's zzzzzzzzzz time. Worst thing is paying for the privilege of watching them nurse a 2-goal lead for 2.5 periods. brutal.
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".
