RCMP have begun an arson investigation after a historic church, almost as old as Canada itself, burned down last month. The fire investigator initially determined the May 22 blaze at the McDougall Memorial Church near Morley was accidental but has since found evidence showing the blaze was deliberately set. Officials said this is a devastating loss. “That’s been in their community for a very long time and many of them are upset,” explained Cochrane RCMP Cpl. Troy Savinkoff.
Calgarians lined up for barbecues and bouncy castles Saturday, for the 4th Annual Neighbour Day, which commemorates community spirit in the wake of the 2013 flood. There were a record number of applications for permits to hold block parties and rent green space from the City of Calgary, which says this is the biggest year yet. “We are having a record amount of permit applications this year,” said spokesperson Eric Michalko.
If you were stuck on Glenmore Trail Tuesday morning, it’s because someone struck a deer. The animal was hit around 7 a.m. and blocked one eastbound lane at 14 Street S.W. by the causeway, causing massive backups all the way to Sarcee Trail/Highway 8. The deer was not removed from the busy road until nearly three hours later.
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".
