People in Old Crow, Yukon, received an unexpected surprise at the end of June, when a woman from B.C. arrived with beadwork and photos from the community 70 years ago. Allane Brine's father Ken Preece was an RCMP constable in Old Crow from 1947 to 1953. During his time there he was given beadwork and other crafts. Preece also took many photos, his daughter said. Preece was only 18 when he joined the RCMP, and Old Crow was one of his earliest postings.
One of Yukon's major Canada 150 events hits a high point Thursday afternoon at the Adäka Cultural Festival when four traditional watercraft built on the Whitehorse waterfront will be launched on the Yukon River. A moosehide canoe built by Teslin Tlingit First Nation citizens John Peters Jr. and Doug Smarch Jr. is one of the four boats. Smarch said his mother cried when she saw the finished boat, from the memories it brought back.
The federal and Yukon governments say they are on track to begin the Faro mine remediation project in 2022. It will be a massive effort to deal with millions of tonnes of tailings and waste rock, and likely cost more than half a billion dollars. The two levels of government are in the middle of a consultation process in Yukon on how the remediation should proceed. Reporters were given an update on the mine closure plan on Monday in Whitehorse.
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".
