Beer will be flowing late into the night at Yellowknife's Folk on the Rocks music festival this year. The beer garden at the festival site on Long Lake will be open until 1 a.m. Friday night, midnight Saturday and 9 p.m. Sunday. The change was prompted by survey results following last year's festival, said Andrew Livingstone, chair of the festival's selection committee.
Marie Neumann walked into her mushroom picking camp around 10 p.m. Friday. It was as if she'd just come back from a hike in the woods. She was tired, a little hungry, covered in mosquito bites, but otherwise fine. But Neumann wasn't coming back from an afternoon hike. She'd just finished a four-day, 30-kilometre journey through forest in the Northwest Territories, trying to make her way back to camp after losing the trail trying to find a backpack. It began last Monday.
Dave Jackson's yellow float plane touches down on the water in Yellowknife's Back Bay. Taking directions from the guide on the dock, he manoeuvres the aircraft toward shore, sliding it into its spot. Another smooth landing complete. Stepping out of the plane, Jackson reaches out to his grandchildren who waited for him there, their bear hug a reward for 24 hours of solo flying from Kingston, Ont. "It's an adventure," Jackson said after the reunion. "I came in to see my daughter and two grandkids.
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".
