It happened again yesterday — another terrorist attack. Authorities say many of the dead and injured in a van attack in Barcelona were tourists. 13 people were killed and 100 were injured when a van drove onto a busy promenade in downtown Barcelona, mowing down pedestrians. 5 civilians and a police officer were injured in another terrorist attack in the seaside town of Cambrils, which officials say was linked to the Barcelona attack. The five suspects were wearing bomb belts.
A wing of a new hospital being built in Vaughan will be named after the Muzzo family. You may recall that name because of convicted drunk driver Marco Muzzo. He is in jail, serving 10-years right now, after being convicted of impaired driving causing death in a 2015 crash in Vaughan that killed three young children and their grandfather.
Just days after the crown withdrew all charges against Marineland because there was no reasonable prospect of conviction, the OSPCA did a “surprise inspection” on Wednesday. According to the OSPCA, there was no correlation between its surprise visit and the Crown’s decision. Marineland says the OSPCA found “no signs of abuse, distress, mistreatment or neglect” of animals. However, the OSPCA is contradicting those claims, saying they gave Marineland until the end of the day to address 11 issues.
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".
