Can men who have sex with men be organ donors in Canada? That’s a tricky question. You’d be forgiven for thinking they can’t, since they’re banned from donating blood if they’re sexually active. In fact, the relevant regulations suggest that gay men’s organs aren’t acceptable in Canada either. Still, some public health agencies say they are, such as Ontario’s Trillium Gift of Life Network which advertises that “everyone is a potential donor regardless of . . . sexual orientation . . .
Jagmeet Singh wants to be the first New Democrat elected prime minister of Canada. It’s an uphill battle for sure — particularly for a man who doesn’t even have a seat in Parliament. But the two-term MPP from Brampton and deputy leader of the Ontario NDP says he’s drawing strength from communities that have not typically been engaged in the political process.
In the run up to Canada’s 150th birthday party, it was fashionable to assert that Canadians had nothing to celebrate. That the country was founded on nothing more than the subjugation of its Indigenous population and the ongoing oppression of minority people. While it’s important to recognize the significant gaps in our struggle for equality, that perspective makes an enormous error by diminishing Canada’s leadership on establishing the human rights of its citizens.
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".
