Whistler will once again get to ride the bus for free on weekends and holiday Mondays this summer, all part of the resort’s sweeping 2017 Transportation Action Plan. The free service, which begins Canada Day, will run every Saturday from 5 a.m. until the last bus on Sunday, or the holiday Mondays of July 3, Aug. 7 and Sept. 4.
At the height of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Andrée Janyk was a much sought-after commentator on national broadcasts of the Games in Whistler. The matriarch of Canada's "first family of skiing," Janyk delighted media for the same reasons she was so beloved in the community she called home: her straightforward candidness, her unbridled enthusiasm for sport, and, above all else, the profound love she had for her family.
Whistler is one step closer to seeing a new bylaw on the books that will prevent food-scrap organics and recyclables heading to the garbage. At Tuesday's council meeting municipal staff got the green light to keep moving ahead with the new Solid Waste Bylaw, a welcome sight for some council members. "It's been a long time coming," said Coun. Sue Maxwell, who added her two cents, proposing several amendments to the draft bylaw.
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".
