Shooting and scoring to help beat cancer just got a lot easier with news that Via Rail will provide free rail travel to out-of-town teams coming into Toronto to play in the fifth annual Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer event this Sept. 26. That gives you plenty of time to brush up on your skills and assemble your team.
Going to a movie these days can be an overwhelming experience for anyone. Theatres are loud, busy places after all; that is their nature. So imagine the struggles people with autism (and their caregivers) have to endure just trying to catch the latest blockbuster. But now, thanks to Cineplex Entertainment, this underserved section of the movie-going public can enjoy some of the latest family-friendly films in an environment tailored to their needs.
Leslie Howle is a busy lady. On a recent Saturday afternoon, the director of Costa Rica’s Toucan Rescue Ranch spoke to Samaritanmag by phone while simultaneously hand-feeding seven of her “babies” — six sloths and a tamandua, otherwise known as an anteater. Various squeaks and squawks pepper our conversation. “Can you hear them?” she asks. We can. The Toucan Rescue Ranch is located in San Isidro, in the province of Heredia, about 20 minutes from downtown San Jose.
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".
