In 2010, Pradeep Majumdar lost his job. He and his wife Meenakshi were in America on work visas. And they had $200 left in the bank. They spent the weekend in the woods. And on the drive home he got a call: a job interview. A week later they were on the road heading to Virginia to start again — again. And it wouldn’t be the last time. “We have nothing to lose,” he said, reflecting on that camping trip.
The faculty are represented by Ontario Public Services Employees Union (OPSEU) and the College Employer Council (CEC) represents their employer, the colleges. More than 500,000 students at 24 colleges in the province were out of class when 12,000 faculty, including professors, instructors, counsellors and librarians took to the picket lines Monday after both sides failed to reach an agreement before the midnight strike deadline.
Now, as a curator for a portion of the park, Cwynar is animating those metaphors through art. “The Don Valley is almost a literal metaphor for how the city of Toronto was built,” she said. A gargoyle lounging in the grass by the Don River may seem out of place, but to Cwynar it’s back where it belongs, telling the story of the valley. The artworks Kari Cwynar is installing in the Don Valley are in and of their surroundings. Don’t call it a sculpture garden. Or an outdoor gallery.
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".
