Remember back in May and June, when many people in this area were complaining about the long, cold winter and the long, wet spring? That time seems impossibly, wistfully, long ago now. As I write these words on the afternoon of Sunday, July 23 a wind storm is swirling through the area; hardly uncommon at this time of year, but now, with so much of the foliage on the hillsides burned away, there is nothing to prevent the soil from being swirled down the valley.
The fire on the west bank of the Thompson River across from Ashcroft on July 7. Some residents are now working on an emergency response plan in the event of a similar disaster. A meeting for Ashcroft residents was held on Saturday, July 22 to discuss events and actions during the recent wildfire, and see about starting a community plan using Emergency Social Services. The objective is to have a group of volunteers organized in the event of a future emergency or disaster.
The fire on Elephant Mountain on the evening of July 7. The Ashcroft Indian Band is working to help support Band members who have been impacted by the fire. While Cornwall Road through the Ashcroft Reserve is now open for traffic travelling between Ashcroft and Highway 1, the Reserve is still under an Evacuation Order. Residents are not able to come and go on the Reserve itself due to public safety.
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".
