A donkey and goat have been unusual celebrities of Old Quebec since they arrived on the grounds of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity six years ago. Now they are leaving for the green pastures of the Eastern Townships. Sarah Blair, a member of the congregation, first arranged to keep Aldo, her donkey, in the Anglican parish after moving to nearby Île d'Orléans. Placing the donkey within the old city's historic walls was a sort of social experiment, she told CBC's Quebec AM.
At a sunrise ceremony earlier this week in Val-d'Or, Anishinaabe elders inaugurated a new housing project they hope will help secure Indigenous culture in the area. Indigenous communities around Val-d'Or have been requesting more social housing for years. As of last week, 110 families had already expressed interest in the 24 new units.
The riverbed in front of the Moisie Salmon Club is the best place to catch salmon on the Moisie River, a remote waterway east of Sept-Îles, Que. Here the fish rest at the bottom of tranquil pools as they prepare to confront the rapids and small waterfalls further upstream. A fisherman can catch a salmon in less than 15 minutes. But only the wealthy American members of the private club are allowed to fish in this choice spot of the river.
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".
