Growing up in the sleepy town of Dartmouth, the bus service was not always treated like a necessity, but more of an adventure. I remember those trips to the bus stop, to what seemed like the long trek into town to sometimes buy a 45 r.p.m. record at Nieforths Furniture, was an exciting event in the sleepy town way of life. You always made sure that you had your five cents because that was all it took, as it was a short trip and no transfers were needed.
The concept of taking off in an airplane and not waiting for the same airplane to land to get off for some may be a unique approach to the world of common sense, but to me this has been a dream for a very long time. While flying in commercial airplanes and even the many military aircraft that I have had the honour to fly in since taking on the role of Honorary Colonel of 14 Construction Engineering Squadron, this opportunity has thankfully never materialized. Thank goodness for that.
14 Construction Engineering Squadron grew by one new member on August 23. In a community close to Lunenburg, Emerson Murphy-Tanner was sworn in by Major Craig Bradshaw, CO of 14 CES—in his kitchen. Emerson couldn’t come to the Headquarters for a few reasons because Emerson is actually only 5 years old and he doesn’t even start school until September. And, he probably needed a nap.
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".
