A new building featuring 52 units of affordable housing for women on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside is now officially open. The Olivia Skye building at 41 East Hastings St. cost $32 million to redevelop and will have a total of 198 units, most of which are studio apartments. "Opening a development like this is one of the many steps to bringing some relief to the housing crisis in our province," said B.C. Housing Minister Selina Robinson on Friday.
A Whistler woman will have to pay nearly $500 in traffic fines for an incident that she reported. The other driver, a new driver getting a lesson, wasn't ticketed at all. Joanna Harrington was heading to work on a stretch of highway from Pemberton to Whistler last July when she drove up behind a driving lesson that was taking place.
Tony Faria and Larry Colburn toss a couple shovels full of steaming asphalt into a pothole in South Vancouver and pound it down until it's firmly packed. One of the men sprinkles a little sand on top, so car tires don't get stuck to the fresh asphalt. Once they've swept up the bit of a mess around the repaired pothole, they quickly move onto the next one about four metres down the road. "This is what we do every day," said Faria. "Then we just go to the next one and do the same thing."
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".
