Canadian insurers only have bunk deals for anybody who grows pot at home. Growing medical marijuana at home is already within the confines of the Canadian law, and soon it will be legal to grow it for recreational use as well. And while the practice of domestic marijuana production is proliferating in Canada, those exercising the newfound freedom have no option to cover their homes through any domestic insurance agency.
Investing in rooftop solar panels was a no-brainer for Oliver resident Maurice Nunas. “Basically the money I had sitting in the bank was earning less than a per cent annually,” he said. “The minute I put it on the roof and the panels starting working, it’s returning five per cent.”The Nunas home began harnessing renewable energy in April, and when they produce more than they use, it’s sold to FortisBC. “No annual fees or later costs.
Hypnotist Ty Reveen has a nearly-magical ability to tap into the potential of the human mind, and when he’s in Oliver on October 14, the performance of local audience members will be a major part of the show. “Our show takes ordinary people and gets them to do extraordinary things,” he said. Under hypnosis, people who are normally shy or timid are able to forego all of their insecurities; behaving in front of a large audience without the pervasive fear of social repercussions.
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".
