Mutiny, mayhem, and murder. Canada's history reads more like an exciting pirate tale than a boring textbook, and that's exactly what Monster Theatre's The Canada Show will show you this Saturday, Nov. 18 at 5 p.m. at the Maury Young Arts Centre. In just an hour, the live, family-friendly performance will delve into Canada's history — but put away your pencils; this is not your social-studies teacher's version of our nation's defining moments.
There are probably a hundred reasons for you not to take the kids to Hawaii right now: the U.S. dollar, Trump’s unstable regime and penchant for war, a lack of dog sitter, a lack of holiday time left at work, the sheer cost of a plane tickets for all of you, the school year that’s still going on and maybe you just hate being hot and sweaty. But here’s the one reason to go: the kids. My mother, husband and I took the kids to sun-filled Alohaland last week.
If you've never experienced a live classical music show then you won't want to miss the upcoming Whistler Chamber Music concert on Sunday, Nov. 5 at the Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church. The concert is the second in a series of six that will take place from the fall to the spring, and it features the Vancouver Brass Quintet. It's going to be a traditional classic concert — with a twist.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
