Mayor John Tory, along with TTC Chair Josh Colle and TTC Commissioner Mary Fragedakis have sent a joint letter to the TTC’s CEO Andy Byford on Thursday, requesting the transit agency look at the costs around the introduction of time-based transfers on all routes in 2018.
The world’s largest conference on gender equality is landing in Canada in 2019, but Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Katja Iversen are already sharing both the inspiration and the empowering message behind it. Not only does the Women Deliver conference focus on gender equality, it speaks to the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women globally. And between June 3 and 6, 2019, Women Deliver will be in Vancouver hosting 6,000 to 7,000 attendees.
After years of annual fare increases, the TTC’s 2018 budget is proposing a fare freeze. A report heading to the TTC’s Budget Committee on Friday has outlined the transit commission’s operating budget requests for the upcoming year, which includes an additional $37.6 million from the City. According to the TTC, the increase is based on a projected ridership of 539 million rides and would help in maintaining 2017 service levels provided to customers.
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".
