Our region has lost one of the more popular historic outdoor authors. Jack Boudreau passed away last week at the age of 84. He was known for his stories of pioneer living in Northern BC's backwoods. The first book he wrote Crazy Man's Creek became number one on the province's bestseller list for non-fiction. Jack Boudreau died in Pincher Creek, Alberta surround by family. A memorial is scheduled for Saturday, February 3rd, 2 pm at Vanier Hall. For the full video story, check back later this evening.
The recent warm-up of temperatures are keeping city officials and some homeowner along the Nechako watching the river's movements closely. As temperatures hover around the freezing mark the activity of the ice jam and water flow are expected to increase. Our region has experienced swings in temperature over the past few weeks, causing the river to develop ice jams and some localized flood to three city homes.
The World Wildlife Fund Canada is the country's largest international conservation group. One of their focuses is to reverse the decline of wildlife. The organization has seen a decline in several wildlife species across the country. Recent surveys conducted by provincial biologists have shown that since the early 2000's, some areas of the BC Interior have seen a 70 percent decline in the moose population.
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".
