Tree planters are planting 40,000 seedlings in the Seven Mile Lake area in Annapolis County, N.S. this week in an effort to regenerate a forest burned in a massive blaze. The August 2016 fire destroyed about 750 acres of Crown land near Kejimikujik National Park. "It looks a bit like a moonscape. We're giving it that extra boost," said Mary Jane Rodger, general manager of Medway Community Forest Co-op.
A professor of food distribution and policy at Dalhousie University predicts marijuana will be a growing trend in the food industry, and says policy needs to be implemented to minimize risk. As it stands now, Bill C-45 does not include the legalization of edible cannabis products. The government has said it would deal with those products at a later date.
Halifax Transit officials are soliciting feedback from the public while moving ahead with plans to expand or relocate the Mumford bus terminal. "It's a bit dated now and not able to meet our current ridership demands, let alone future," said Patricia Hughes, Halifax Transit's manager of planning and scheduling. Hughes said Halifax Transit is hoping the redesign will create a "more comfortable" place for passengers to wait for the bus.
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".
