The only medical clinic in Lillooet, B.C., will close without a new owner, according to Lillooet mayor Marg Lampman. The doctor who owns the building in the Interior community about 250 km northeast of Vancouver announced last fall that he wants to sell it because he's retiring from his practise. "This is the first time that this [situation] has come forward," Lampman said. "It was a bit of a shock when it was first announced."
The B.C. government and the City of Kamloops announced this week they are working to build more than 100 modular homes for people in need in Kamloops, B.C. "Too many people are struggling to find housing that meets their needs," said Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Selina Robinson. The modular units, each with their own bathroom and kitchen, will be built in two locations on each side of the city.
Snowmobilers in B.C. 's Interior are worried that changes to a land use proposal from a local heli-skiing company will cut off access to safe snowmobiling areas. The Eight Peaks Sustainable Resource Management Plan for the eight mountains visible from Blue River — located between Kamloops and Jasper — was put forward in 2003. Albert Venor, president of the Blue River Powder Packers Society, said part of the plan included cutting ski runs on all eight of the mountains visible from the town.
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".
