The Maple Ridge Lapidary Club is turning 60 this year, and has lots to show for it. The Maple Ridge Lapidary Club 2018 Rock and Gem Show takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 24, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 25 at Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall, 12460 Harris Road. The club was started in 1958 by Laurie Meggait, a rockhounding teacher at Maple Ride secondary. His students became the first members.
Children are often the forgotten mourners when it comes to grieving over the death of a loved one. One minute they can be screaming and having a breakdown, kicking and crying, but smiling the next. They can appear to be coping well with a death when really they are not. “What I hear a lot from parents and grandparents is behaviour changed or they are not sleeping or they are being more angry, being naughty more,” said Susanne Lamb, bereavement coordinator with the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society.
A free five hour concert will be taking place in support of Cythera House in Maple Ridge. This will be the final fundraising event for the Halcyon Imagineers which formed five years ago. The evening will be filled with folk, blues, jazz, rap, hip hop, classic rock, ukulele, grunge and contemporary rock.
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".
