How did a girl born and raised in the French Alps end up so far away from any descent mountain?
After a master's at Northwestern, I got my first gig at Bloomberg filling in holes in the Paris office as a news assistant. Which meant writing about the French stock market three days into the job. D...

“We view ourselves as serving the communities very well and we have a lot of skills at selling age-restricted products -- being in most markets beer and in most markets tobacco,” Hannasch told reporters following the company’s annual meeting in Montreal. “So to the extent society needs us to provide that service, we think we’d be wanting to do it with the right regulations in place, with the right expectations.”
Couche-Tard, which started with one store in a Montreal suburb in 1980, will soon have a footprint in 48 U.S. states. Bouchard has gradually expanded the company, first in its home market, then to the rest of Canada, before entering the U.S. in 2001 and Europe in 2012. Some investors are wondering what will drive Couche-Tard’s growth given sluggish demand in parts of the U.S. and threats to gasoline consumption posed by the rise of electric and more fuel-efficient vehicles.
Quebec will also back a bid by Montreal -- the province’s largest city -- to lure Amazon.com Inc.’s second corporate headquarters, Couillard said. Cheap power, declining corporate tax rates and the presence of four universities all play in Montreal’s favor, he said. Toronto, Canada’s largest city, has already announced its intention to compete for Amazon’s new site and multiple U.S. and Canadian cities are also in the race.
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".
