It’s always fun to find out how others see us. The Wall Street Journal put its magnifying glass over Victoria’s real estate market to describe it as a “comparative bargain.”
In comparison with Vancouver’s prices, that is. Victoria is a picturesque “sleepy” place with wooded roads, a laid-back lifestyle, lively harbour and a small-town vibe, the paper said in its Thursday edition. Gosh. We sound so cute. Adorable even.
A growing number of Vancouver developers are looking across the Strait of Georgia for opportunities in the capital region, where prices and housing demand are strong and the economy is booming. Several companies have invested hundreds of millions of dollars and built thousands of homes in capital region projects in the past two decades, often in the form of downtown condominium towers where the urban lifestyle is catching on. Once they build here, they often stay to put up more projects.
Nanaimo residents are being invited to share their ideas on the best way to develop waterfront land just south of downtown. Citizens can view concepts and options for 1 Port Dr. at a open house at the site from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday. This was the site planned for the proposed events centre, which went down to defeat this year. Nanaimo started its master plan process in October 2015.
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".
