A downtown St. John's business is planning to preserve the past while expending into the future. Posie Row owner Anita Carroll is taking over the 123-year-old building next door on Duckworth Street. It used to house Polyana Gallery and Antique store but still contains its original tin ceilings, tin walls, mouldings and doors. "We're going to expand over. We always wanted to bring more product in," Carroll said.
Northern saw-whet owls are not only incredibly cute, they're now confirmed as a nesting species in Newfoundland and Labrador. The nest was discovered by College of the North Atlantic fish and wildlife student Brendan Kelly, who had built nesting boxes hoping to attract boreal owls. Kelly discovered the two northern saw-whet owls about 900 metres apart in separate nest boxes. When he returned to check on them a week later, he found something else.
About 4,700 people will take to the streets of Paradise, Mount Pearl and St. John's on Sunday for the 90th running of the Tely 10. "I think a lot of people see this as a challenge or a goal, something they put on their wish list," said Randy Ball, the Tely 10 race director. On one runner's wish list is a record number of wins. Colin Fewer has won nine races and is hoping to beat Pat Kelly's run as greatest racer of all time with a 10th straight win. "We would love to see it happen.
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".
