WATCH: A missing therapy goat in Saanich struck up a new friendship which ultimately led to her capture. Ceilidh Millar reports. Me-Kon Hayes and the Binkadi Community Services team are adding to the fencing of their new goat pen. "We're making their area a little more escape proof" said Hayes with a laugh. It's a necessary improvement because their two-year-old therapy goat named Genevieve escaped from their property on July 8.
WATCH: We’re kicking off the week with sunshine and warmer temperatures by Monday. Ceilidh Millar has your full forecast. We're trading in those grey skies for blue skies with lots of sunshine on the way for the start of the work week. This morning, we were still hanging onto the cloud cover but the sunshine broke through the clouds by the afternoon. A warm-up is on the way across the Island for the start of the week.
WATCH: The Cowichan Valley became the heart and soul of folk music this weekend. Ceilidh Millar reports. The soothing sounds of folk music drew hundreds to the Cowichan Valley this weekend for the 33rd Annual Islands Folk Festival. "We have such an abundance of amazing acts on the Island," said first-time artistic director Kelly Nakatsuka. "I really wanted to represent the Islands all around the South Coast and feature Indigenous performers."
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".
