Nova Scotia filmmaker Mike Bromley who grew up surfing off Cow Bay and Lawrencetown, has completed his latest feature-length surf movie, Perilous Sea. Three years in the making, Bromley and his filmmaking partner Ryan Meichtry wanted to make the first surf film set in some of the world's harshest surf weather — the rugged North Atlantic. "The North Atlantic surfer is definitely a special breed," Bromley explained from Cow Bay, N.S., with the ocean as flat as a pancake behind him.
As Hope Blooms prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary with a gala fundraiser featuring Dragons' Den star Arlene Dickinson Wednesday night, one of its original members is getting ready to go to a top American university. Bocar Wade has been accepted to Stanford University with a scholarship. The first year alone at the school costs $68,000. "I'm really excited to go there, it's going to be an amazing opportunity," Wade said.
Colin Melia's living room, dining room and garage are jammed with computers, wires, 3D printers and soldering equipment. There's even a big water tank for testing. "I think the whole house has become the war room it's fair to say." What it's really become is a robotics workshop, thanks to the work-to-rule campaign earlier this year by Nova Scotia teachers during their contract dispute with the government.
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".
