March is the best time for artsy travellers to explore Hong Kong. During Hong Kong Arts Month, events take place across the city — everything from major exhibitions to dance, music, theatre and local happenings. Here is a sample:* The 46th Hong Kong Arts Festival (HKAF) runs to March 24 and features more than 1,700 international and local artists in 130 performances.
There are lots of kid-friendly activities in and around Toronto during March break. These include:* The Art Gallery of Ontario has nine days of drop-in family fun March 10-18 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily — everything from making a silly Emoji face mask to creating a family memory on the Selfie Wall and more. Activities are free with general admission. Visitors can save $10 off the cost of a family pass when they buy advance tickets online. See ago.ca/events/march-break-2018.
As the Sun’s National Travel Editor, I receive a barrage of information about events, tours, hotel developments, etc. Here are some things I found interesting this week:For 57 years now, the Myrtle Beach area has been welcoming Canadians travellers with deep discounts on attractions, accommodation, dining and more during its one-week Canadian-American Festival, aka Can-Am Days. This year’s event runs March 10 to March 18, and once again there are dicounts ranging from 25% to 55% off.
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".
