The latest count of Calgarians commuting downtown has found more people are driving than taking transit to get to and from work. The 2017 count collected data from 13 different locations. The report found just over 40 per cent of commuters took transit downtown, compared to over 46 per cent who arrived by vehicle. It’s quite a change from last year, when over 47 per cent of commuters used transit while 42 per cent drove.
Alberta Education released preliminary findings from an audit of the Calgary Board of Education’s finances on Thursday, adding that the board “needs to keep their budgets from September to June more consistent.”The review was ordered in June by Education Minister David Eggen over concerns about a $38.6-million budget shortfall at the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) for 2017-2018.
As we head toward our last long weekend of the summer, the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) is pushing the province to align its “slow down, move over” law with those of other provinces.The legislation is intended to protect workers and motorists at the roadside by requiring drivers in the adjacent lane to reduce their speed to 60 km/h and move over when coming across a stopped emergency vehicle.But AMA said Wednesday the message doesn’t seem to be getting through to Albertans.
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".
