Albertans working in the culinary world are already busy enough during the holiday season, as schedules fill up with private events, catering parties and a general influx of patrons. Yet, some in the industry still find time to give back during one of the busiest times of the year – from music-inspired coffee to extending meal-sharing to local shelters or The Ship and Anchor pub's famous fundraising eggnog in Calgary. Take Calgary's Monogram Coffee, for example.
There is no shortage of wonderful restaurants to dine at in Canadaâ€™s most central city, but nothing seems to unite Winnipegâ€™s diverse food scene quite like fried chicken. Forget chicken and waffles.Â At Clementine, located in the heart of The Exchange District, fried chicken is presented on top of a thick, toasted piece of house-made sourdough with a slather of three-onion dip and house pickles. Wash it down with â€œThe Dude,â€?
Giving Tuesday--an initiative that is, essentially, the (positive) antithesis of Black Friday--has been gaining traction over the past few years and that’s wonderful to see. In honour of Giving Tuesday, we have partnered up with the Calgary Foundation for a community-building giveaway that’s paired perfectly with the holiday season.
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".
