This December, we discovered that our "Land and Sea: Full Archival Episodes" playlist is the ninth-best performing YouTube playlist of 2017, CBC-wide. That means archival episodes of Land & Sea are being watched as much as Marketplace, The Fifth Estate and Daniel Tiger. More than just tapping our Newfoundland pride, this milestone serves as a reminder that sometimes it pays to challenge accepted wisdom. In this golden era of video, producers are told the faster, splashier and weirder, the better.
Over the past few weeks, CBC has been looking at the issue of resettlement through the lens of the people in Gaultois. The population of the town peaked in the 1960s at almost 600 residents. Now, it's hovering at less than 120. The CBC's Terry Roberts visited the town in November and found the people there demoralized; most of the women at the weekly dart league raised their hands in support of resettlement when asked. So what happened to the once proud and bustling town of Gaultois?
We've all heard eating lean fish protein is good for you. Well, how about drinking it? The Icelandic company, Codland, is betting on a health drink it developed using marine collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body and it maintains skin's elasticity. Codland developed a process to extract anti-aging collagen from cod skin.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
