Not everyone in B.C. is a fan of how former premier Christy Clark responded to a sharp rise in real-estate prices that occurred during her years in office. According to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV), in December 2017, the benchmark price for a single-family detached home on the city of Vancouver’s east side was $1.6 million, up 61 percent from just three years earlier.
Last Thursday (January 18), Vancouver Aquarium CEO John Nightingale announced that the nonprofit organization would no longer keep cetaceans in tanks in Stanley Park. “The ongoing discussions about whales and dolphins in our care have been a distraction from real threats to the ocean and have sidelined the critical work we lead," he wrote in an aquarium blog post. "We aim to inspire people in every corner of the planet to participate in creating healthy oceans, and it’s time to get on with it."
How much would you pay to drive a car into Vancouver’s downtown core? There are relatively few paths into the city. Just four bridges plus less than a half dozen roads through the east end. So if the city of Vancouver did want to charge people bringing vehicles downtown, it wouldn’t be such a complicated undertaking. Such a plan, called “congestion pricing,” was proposed for New York City yesterday (January 18).
On Monday (Jan 22), #Liberia will undergo its first peaceful transition of power since 1944. Leaving is Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who assumed office in 2006 as the first elected female head of state in Africa's modern history. https://t.co/8XJwKM2Kvw

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".
