It's a busy summer at the Erik Nielsen International Airport in Whitehorse and with more flights come more line-ups. Kim Sinclair is the owner of an airport shuttle service. He has been keeping an eye on the increased activity. "Last summer was the busiest ever but this summer is dwarfing last summer," he said. "Times have changed. There's a lot more planes coming and going so security has a bigger line up ... It's the same thing for the front desk going to get your ticket."
The Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in First Nation's teaching farm outside Dawson City is growing this year, with plans to expand its gardens and add berries and apple trees. Also new to the farm this year — eight piglets. "We're so pleased and proud as punch to have the first animals come to the site," said Dexter MacRae, who oversees education and training for the First Nation. More animals — rabbits and chickens — will come to the farm later this month.
Food truck vendors in Whitehorse are preparing for the summer season and it looks like there will be at least a couple of new options this year for fans of downtown "street eats". The city has seven spots downtown for food trucks, in a few locations. So far, five vendors have been given spots. Two spots are still unclaimed. "A little bit of a turnover this year," said Ben Campbell, a planner with the city. Some familiar options from last summer will be back.
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".
