I’m dining with travelling companions under the stars on a terrace built into a mountainside at Stonefield Estate Resort in St. Lucia. Below, the Caribbean Sea shimmers in the moonlight and overhead we marvel at the International Space Station rocketing past at 25,000 km/h, its astronauts and cosmonauts looking down on us from Earth’s orbit. At the centre of the table is Cybelle Brown, our host whose Canadian family owns the resort. I know what her answer would be.
Mountains have long stood as symbols of achievement, challenges to overcome. They are immortalized in art, in mythology and hold us in wonderment at their fortress strength and beauty. Mountains can be scary, sometimes mysterious, but they are always inspiring. IMPACT spoke to three Canadians who have connected with mountains in special ways.
The race to become a full-fledged Canadian can’t come fast enough for Jacob Puzey — and Puzey is fast. The American runner and coach, who has lived in Calgary for the past two years with his Canadian wife, Amy Golumbia Puzey, was the first Canadian-registered runner across the finish line at this year’s Boston Marathon in April. “Anytime someone wants to refer to me an almost-Canadian, I’ll take that,” says Puzey, 34.
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".
