The Calgary Police Service will be keeping their cars as they are, following the closure of a review on the vehicles’ colour scheme. Terry Lawson, an inspector with the Calgary police’s traffic section, said that the review was prompted by some citizens saying that the black and white on the newer fleet – which was introduced in 2012 after Ford ended production of the Crown Victoria – was too intimidating.
Calgary is going to get a little bit brighter on March 27. Singer, songwriter, and Juno award-winner Lights will be at Calgary’s MacEwan Hall this spring, as she tours to promote her 2017 album Skin & Earth. The album was released in pieces throughout 2017, alongside a Skin & Earth comic book series created by Lights herself. The 30-year-old Ontario-born singer will be visiting Calgary as part of her extensive North America tour, which she’ll be kicking off in Vancouver, BC on January 30.
The University of Calgary has decided against expelling Connor Neurauter. After the 21-year-old pleaded guilty to the sexual interference of a 13-year-old girl occuring in 2015, he was sentenced to 90 days at the Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre – but the judge allowed for his sentence to begin in May 2018 so he could finish his current semester at the University of Calgary.
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".
