Marc Fortier is looking forward to his total freedom from hydro bills in the very near future. The 3,600-square-foot, two-storey new home he and his wife recently moved into in Durham Region is Net Zero Ready. With the addition of solar panels, the home will become fully Net Zero, potentially producing as much energy as it consumes. “Our goal is to run the whole house on solar and we’re not planning to feed it back to the grid,” says Fortier. “That takes a different infrastructure.
A $360-million, large-scale condo project planned for downtown Hamilton is promising a major boost to the city’s urban renewal efforts. Television City, a residential and retail community to be built on a one-acre site downtown Hamilton’s 163 Jackson St. W. — home to CHCH TV station — is the project of Toronto’s Lamb Development Corp., in partnership with Movengo Developments. The enterprise will consist of 618 condominium units in two connected towers that will be 30- and 40-plus storeys tall.
Gioia Di Giovanni loves downtown Toronto. She just doesn’t want to live there. Di Giovanni, 36, works in healthcare in the 905 and owns a condominium in Richmond Hill, close to where she was born and raised. She wants to move up to a larger condo south of her current address and has found the perfect solution at Transit City — the first residential tower that will be built at Smart Centres Place in Vaughan, a 100-acre master-planned development.
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".
