Discovery Wildlife Park in Innisfail has a history of doing things that leave some people scratching their heads…and earlier this week, they did it again. One of their bears, Berkley, was celebrating her first birthday. Trainers took her to the local Dairy Queen to test out some ice cream to see what cake she wants. How fun. However some bear experts say this was irresponsible, regardless of how trained the bear is. While the trainers say nobody was ever at risk. Take a look.
AHHHHHH! The first Super Troopers was a work of art, and we are getting very close to the sequel! They just released the first full trailer for it, and it will involved them dealing WITH CANADA!! HOW FUN! And of course its coming out on 4/20…
Rememeber that show Battlebots? Where people would build robots that would battle to the death? Well a local guy, Lucas Sloan, was on that show back in 2016 and is now ready to bring it to a local level. Lucas has started the Edmonton Robotic Fighting League and they are looking to start hosting fights for robots of all sizes and specs. We talked to Lucas! Take a listen:
Really enjoyed the new David Letterman show on Netflix. His talk with Barack Obama was interesting. 2 men who mastered their crafts. Both dripping with intelligence. Look forward to more episodes. https://t.co/gq0Bj2VlFc
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".
