Alberta Health Services is suggesting a minimum age of 21 for recreational marijuana purchases — and proposes the province use future legislation as an ''opportunity" to consider raising the ages to buy tobacco and liquor. The organization, which is responsible for delivering health services to Albertans, suggests that setting conservative rules at the outset is the best approach, since it's "very difficult" to tighten rules once they're already in place.
Edmonton and St. Albert are en route to consolidating some transit services. After years of wrangling about co-operation between municipalities in the capital region, the two cities are poised to join their commuter bus services. But the announcement on Thursday was only one step in a process that has already taken years, and will not see buses hit the road until at least 2019.
One of Edmonton's biggest homeless shelters will be torn down as soon as next year — and then rebuilt on the same site. The redevelopment of the Hope Mission's Herb Jamieson Centre has been given the green light to proceed, despite opposition from area residents and business owners who criticized the proposal at the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board on Wednesday. The men's shelter, run by the Hope Mission at 101st Street and 105A Avenue, has been open since 1954.
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".
