The visitor centre at Yukon's Tombstone Territorial Park is bustling this year, and staff say they've seen thousands more visitors compared to last year. As the fall colours start to appear along the Dempster Highway, tourists like Alex Bereza of Germany and his friends are making Tombstone Park a priority during their Yukon visit.
The Town of Faro, Yukon, has sold 11 of the community's 37 abandoned properties â€” buildings that have sat vacant since the nearby Faro mine closed two decades ago. "It's a beautiful town, great people here," said town councillor Pat McCracken, who noted the sale of abandoned houses is going better than expected. "We're hoping that there's more people interested in living in a place that is as nice as Faro." McCracken has been in the community since the boom days of the 1970s.
Big game outfitters in the Yukon are disappointed with a move to ban trophy hunting of grizzly bears in British Columbia and hope a similar ban is not adopted in the territory. "It will probably put some pressure on the Yukon to start limiting the grizzly hunt," said Neil Cosco an outfitter who guides clients north of Teslin. B.C. 's Natural Resources Minister Doug Donaldson said the ban, which comes into effect at the end of November, is not about numbers but rather reflects changing social norms.
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".
