In 2016, we launched the paycheque project series of stories. After watching young Canadians get criticized for reckless spending, we wanted to have a look at how much money young Canadians actually have coming in – and how they are choosing to spend it. The stories you send us include struggles with student debt and securing decent work, to success with investing and sacrifices made when purchasing and paying off a home.
Darryl Dyck/The Globe and Mail Best financial facelift shots of 2017 DARRYL DYCK/THE GLOBE AND MAIL Financial Facelift runs every Saturday in Globe Investor. A long-time favourite with Globe readers, the series features a financial planner giving real people an assessment of their current financial situation, and advice on how to reach their goals. These real people who share their personal financial details remain anonymous, which means taking a picture is challenging.
Far from sailing off into retired bliss, some older Canadians are nearing their golden years with a mixture of worry and fear. And while a number of them are approaching retirement or have stopped working without a financial care, many others point to a lack of money as a major reason for delaying or foregoing retirement. The latest government data shows that more people are working, at least part-time, after the traditional retirement age of 65.
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".
