It’s official. RAPS – Richmond’s animal shelter – has changed its name and is now called the “Regional” Animal Protection Society. British Columbia’s Registrar of Companies this week approved a change of name for the old Richmond Animal Protection Society. “The change represents the reality that we serve animals from far beyond the City of Richmond, many of whom come to us because of our no-kill commitment,” said Eyal Lichtmann, CEO of the now Regional Animal Protection Society (RAPS).
Two people were taken to hospital after being exposed to an unknown substance at Canada Post’s sorting facility in Richmond. Just after 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Richmond Fire-Rescue responded to a call from the facility on Sea Island, next to Vancouver International Airport. According to fire-rescue, a package was discovered broken and a powder had spilled out, causing the pair of workers to have breathing problems and elevated heart rates.
She’s known as the “Angel of Whiteside elementary” — and for good reason. Everyone at the multi-cultural South Arm school knows Charlotte Cheung as the lady who helps and, despite not being employed at Whiteside, is apparently as much of a fixture as the teachers themselves. According to the school’s parents, Cheung, who has a son in Grade 6, devotes most of her free time to not just volunteering at Whiteside, but goes out of her way to make people smile and surprise them on a daily basis.
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".
