The dates of the 2018 BC Bike Ride North—described by organizers as “the ultimate road trip experience in Northern British Columbia,” happening from Aug. 4–12—have been announced, and registration for the second edition of the event opens on Nov. 27 at 9 a.m. There are only 50 seats available for this “unique mountain bike vacation,” though, so officials are recommending that interested riders reserve their spots early.
On Nov. 27, the Toronto Hustle squad is looking back at its season at the Godspeed Brewery in Toronto. The event is billed as “an evening of celebration, cinematography and delicious pints.”The event, notably, marks another season finale, too — that of Hold Fast, a series that sheds light on the highs and lows of road racing through the experience of the team during its first season. The series is sponsored and presented by Cervélo.
When it comes to two people taking a leisurely ride together through the streets of a major Canadian city, there may be no pair less likely than Jagmeet Singh, the newly-elected head of the New Democratic Party, and Doug Ford, a Toronto city councillor running for mayor of that city in 2018 and brother of the late Rob Ford. But as was featured on Political Blind Date, a new series, that’s exactly what happened.
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".
