KAMLOOPS — It seems there is no slowing the overdose epidemic in B.C. With more than 1,100 deaths, it's been all hands on deck trying to save lives, and the St. John Ambulance has been playing a vital role starting this year. "When things really took a turn for the worst in December, St. John Ambulance was called upon by Health Emergency Management BC to contribute first responders to the crisis," said Jill Wurflinger from St. John Ambulance B.C. & Yukon.
KAMLOOPS — The City of Kamloops hosted a two-hour public budget meeting on Tuesday night, and while city staff were open to any suggestions from residents, the idea of an outdoor rink dominated some of the discussions. While discussions were happening inside, people were playing road hockey outside the Sandman Centre. "It was so much fun. It was awesome. I love hockey," said one participant.
KAMLOOPS — The Canada Games Pool has been in use for nearly 25 years. Built for the 1993 Canada Summer Games, the city says it's in need of major renovations. Facilities manager Jeff Putnam notes one of the city's priority during upgrades is to improve energy efficiency. "A lot of people don't realize that the Canada Games pool is such a large body of water and needed to be heated. This building produces 10% of the entire corporate greenhouse gas emissions for the whole city.
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".
