WASHINGTON -- U.S. Ambassador Kelly Craft is postponing her Canadian debut as last minute “obligations” have delayed her initial starting date of September 12. Craft had told CTV News she aimed to present her credentials in Quebec City on that date, but officials have postponed it by a month or so. Sources cite one reason for the delay is to arrange a ceremonial swearing in by Vice President Mike Pence, with other high ranking Republicans in attendance.
WASHINGTON -- Kelly Craft was officially sworn in as the U.S. ambassador to Canada on Friday and told CTV News she will present her credentials in Quebec City on Sept. 12. Craft took the Oath of Office at a private ceremony at the Kentucky governor’s mansion, surrounded by family and friends. Gov. Matt Bevin, a personal friend, became a notary public specifically to administer the Oath. Another ceremonial swearing in by Vice President Mike Pence is expected before she moves north.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Hollywood digital animation and effects artists say they can’t compete against aggressive Canadian subsidies and are fighting back at NAFTA public hearings. California-based 3D artist Eric Rosenthal has worked on movies, commercials, and video games. But he's now working to change the long-standing U.S.-Canada trade agreement he calls unfair.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
