National Geographic is showing love to Montreal in its latest piece that highlights the city’s must-see attractions. “The largest city in Quebec and the second biggest in Canada, Montreal possesses a joie de vivre that travelers can sense—and taste—immediately,” writes author Susan Nerberg, who goes on to list some of the best attractions the city has to offer. Her piece is accompanied by amazing snapshots of the city captured by photographer Kris Davidson.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in Vancouver today where he announced that Canada would be bolstering its peacekeeping roles and civilian protection measures. Trudeau introduced the launch of the ‘Vancouver Principles on Peacekeeping and the Prevention of the Recruitment and Use of Child Soldiers’ during his opening remarks at the UN Peacekeeping Defence Ministerial Conference.
On a trip to Georgia, I enter a restaurant with my partner, who is male. “Sorry,” the maître-d’ says, “we don’t serve homosexuals.”According to the law being debated in Georgia — quite similar to the one just vetoed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer — this would be perfectly legal. That law — like others rejected by legislators in South Dakota, Kansas, Idaho, and Tennessee — is the latest salvo in a long campaign to redefine “religious liberty” to include the liberty to discriminate against other people.
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".
