School bus drivers in the Yukon are getting a crash course on safe driving, but the crashes are all on a driving simulator that's been brought to the territory for a few days this week. The Standard Bus Company has the contract to operate all of the territory's school bus routes, according to its general manager, Ron Swizdaryk. He said that's 61 buses. He expects about 45 of the drivers will take a spin on the driving simulator. "The cargo we haul is our future," Swizdaryk said.
Construction is complete on the new $72 million emergency department at the Whitehorse General Hospital. Officials say it will begin taking patients in January. Until then, staff will be doing drills and run-throughs to ensure they can smoothly handle emergencies in the new workplace from the get-go. The public will get its first look when tours are offered in December. The media was given a chance to see the new facility Wednesday.
Yukon judge Peter Chisholm said polluters in the territory must be aware they will be treated seriously by the courts, as he sentenced one of the stars of the Discovery Channel program Gold Rush. He fined Tony Beets and Beets's company Tamarack Inc. a total of $31,000 in Yukon territorial court on Friday. Territorial government lawyer Megan Seiling had asked for fines in the $50,000 range, while defence lawyer AndrĂŠ Roothman had suggested $14,000.
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".
