They say do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. A Regina woman has done just that – but it took a life-threatening disease to help her decide to pursue her passion. Karen Morley doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth, but she does have a knack for making chocolates. “It’s a passion,” she said. “But, in order to be successful, you have to be persistent and you have to practise.”She’s been working at making chocolates for the past eight years.
Many theatre productions are packed with bright lights, loud music and action. But some people can’t handle that high level of stimulation. That's why the Globe Theatre is offering a relaxed performance for its production of ‘A Christmas Carol.’“It's for people or family members who are on the autism spectrum, also for families with small children, and also for people that have auditory sensitivities,” said Ruth Smillie, Globe Theatre’s artistic director and CEO.
Ahmed Araf compares gas prices online before filling up at the pump. As a taxi driver, he wants to find the best deal. But lately, those deals are few and far between. “I used to fill up the tank (to) like almost $40. Now it's going up to like $70,” said Araf.
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".
