This year's Remembrance Day has even greater significance for some Yukoners. They were among the thousands of Canadians who travelled to northern France to be part of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge this past April. For Helen and Rod Dewell of Dawson City, Yukon, the trip was a pilgrimage of sorts to pay tribute to a Yukoner buried in the Cabaret-Rouge British Cemetery, a short distance from the Vimy Memorial.
It's like a rite of passage for high school students in Whitehorse — a visit to the annual Education, Career and Volunteer Expo. Hundreds of students went to the event on Wednesday, and had the opportunity to talk to dozens of recruiters from universities and colleges as well as local employers. Grade 12 students Shayla Bierlmeir and Julie Rusnak said it's both an exciting and stressful time in their lives.
Families begin moving into a new $6.3 million Whitehorse housing project in the Whistle Bend neighbourhood on Wednesday. An official opening on Friday celebrated the River Bend development as a joint collaboration between the Ta'an Kwäch'än Council and the federal, territorial and city governments. The three buildings contain 42 social housing units. Kristina Kane, chief of the First Nation, said that includes homes for 12 Ta'an Kwäch'än families.
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".
