If you’ve been wondering about the tents lining Mary Hill Road and Wilson Avenue in Port Coquitlam, you may be glad to know it isn’t any kind of City urban-tenting initiative. The campers are dug in for a Montrose Square condo pre-sale – part of what will be a group of multi-use buildings and a pedestrian-only plaza connected to the new recreation centre. The sale starts on Saturday, but eager buyers have been camping out since as early as Wednesday to put a deposit down on their future homes.
The Bow Valley wolf pack, which was five strong at one point, has since disbanded, leaving only one young female wolf remaining in the area. A breeding pair of wolves started the original wolf pack with three pups in the fall of 2015, but they began making trips into town that winter, according to Banff National Park Wildlife Ecologist Jesse Whittington, in a phone interview with Daily Hive.
An artist in Calgary has painted over 60 phone-wielding characters for her exhibit Calling…Heather Buchanan will be opening her exhibit on Friday, September 29 at The Uncommons, allowing people to gaze at the “60+ paintings of fake people on fake phones, calling nobody, but still somehow filled with meaning,” according to the event’s Facebook page.
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".
