Maybe it is just me but as someone who prefers taking public transit than driving, Nelson Transit has disappointed me (and my kids) for years, and it doesn't seem to get any better. I place the responsibility squarely on the individual(s) doing the scheduling. They seem unable to recognize the needs of riders. For those working downtown, the ability to arrive downtown at least 10 minutes before the hour or half hour would be ideal.
Michelle Mungall of the NDP has been re-elected in Nelson-Creston. “It has been such an honour,” she said in an interview at her campaign gathering, “just to see the team grow and grow and grow over the past five weeks. It has been very humbling, and today I spent the day campaigning here in Nelson and watching the steady stream of volunteers.
Richard Desautels, a Sinixt hunter from the U.S., is interviewed by the media after being acquitted of hunting illegally last month in Nelson. The decision is being appealed. The provincial crown is appealing the acquittal last month of a Sinixt man from the U.S. who was charged with hunting without a licence and hunting while not being a resident. In 2010, Richard Desautel shot an elk near Castlegar, resulting in a 16-day trial in Provincial Court in Nelson earlier this year.
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".
