For those of you believing the the NDP/Green Alliance will go strong for four years, I submit to you evidence of the contrary:The NDP are holding a ‘Golf with John and Rob’ Fundraiser at Bear Mountain in Victoria on August 24th…the John being BC Premier John Horgan and the Rob being Education Minister Rob Fleming. For $2000 per foursome of $500 per player, you can ‘golf’ with John and Rob and then hob knob later. It is the very fundraising that they campaigned against in the Provincial Election.
The news came in a flash across Social Media on a quiet Friday morning…Christy Clark to resign effective August 4, 2017. So let’s understand a couple of things:Regardless of what anyone from the BC Liberal Party has told you, this was an eventuality. You do not go from a 16 year majority to a minority government without a clue that leadership would be scrutinized. Ms. Clark was on the plank and jumped before she was pushed.
Hello from Fountain Hills, Arizona. Home of sun, golf, and for now the Arizona Coyotes. As my two weeks in the Valley of the Sun comes to a conclusion (I take an annual two week vacation here - Cheap Golf and hot weather guaranteed), the story that I keep hearing about is the Arizona Coyotes and their disaster in Glendale.
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".
