Some Moose Javians may not have been interested in the rare astronomical event that happened Monday morning, but the Andersons on the other hand, turned it into a family event. Barry Anderson and his wife Sandra enjoyed a solar eclipse viewing party in their front yard with their daughter Lisa and grandchildren Makayla, 14, and Cullum, 8. “It was awesome,” said Callum, who viewed the first partial solar eclipse he will remember.
The city’s Heritage Advisory Committee has been busy this summer planning some facelifts and improvements for historical sites around town. The team is starting by giving new life to some heritage site placards and then also adding QR codes to buildings with rich histories. They have chosen to fix five placards that were in the worst shape, said Ira Dale, Heritage Advisory Committee chairman.
After almost an entire month of no rain at all, August stormed into Moose Jaw and area with around 10 mm of precipitation. For local farmers, the downfall is both good and bad, said Shannon Friesen, Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture’s acting crop management specialist. “It will help the crops fill pods and heads and hopefully replenish some of the top soil,” said Friesen. But because of the hot, dry July, some crops matured more quickly, meaning they are ready for an early harvest.
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".
