What you need to know about the city’s new proposed Airbnb rulesWhat you need to know about the city’s new proposed Airbnb rulesOn Thursday, the city’s licensing and standards committee will debate a new regulatory regime for Airbnb and other short-term rental services. The proposed rules would severely limit the growth of Airbnb-like services in the city—and maybe even put a few serial Airbnbers out of business entirely.
Colm Wilkinson is known around the world as the actor and singer who originated the role of Jean Valjean in the London and Broadway productions of Les Miserables, but he’s not kicking back in a French villa; he’s a Torontonian. He moved here with his family in 1989, when he landed the lead in the Toronto production of the The Phantom of the Opera, and he never left. In 1992, he and his wife, Deirdre, closed on a house at 64 Binscarth Road, in Rosedale, for $1,925,000. Now they’re selling it.
Someone is trying to rent out their unfinished basement as an apartmentSomeone is trying to rent out their unfinished basement as an apartmentBasement apartments are some of the last truly affordable rental housing available anywhere near downtown, but this $500-per-month place in Bloor West Village, currently being advertised on Craigslist, is beyond affordable. It’s practically a steal.
@ClaireMcWatt@neville_park I was at a panel once where an architect said that Toronto condos are chunky in part because of Ontario fire codes. The province apparently requires lots of stairwells, which can make it tough to build a slender tower. (Haven't done the research myself, though.)
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".
