Scrapping the carbon tax, cutting taxes on business and government red tape are among the key commitments in Brian Jean’s policy to secure Alberta’s economic future. The United Conservative Party leadership candidate spoke in Calgary Tuesday to announce his plan for a New Alberta Advantage. If elected, Jean says Albertans can expect a 50 per cent drop in the small business tax, and a reduction of business taxes from 12 to 10 per cent.
It should be a wild night at McMahon Stadium this Saturday, as the Saskatchewan Roughriders pay their first visit of the year, but regardless of who comes out on top, the Calgary Food Bank will be the ultimate winner. Murray Gibson, Purolator’s district manager, said the bar is being raised for donations. “We always want to beat last year’s record,” he said. “So far in Calgary, we’ve raised just under a million pounds, so we’re going to cross the million-pound mark this year.
Officials at the Calgary Stampede say security for this year’s show will be enhanced even further in response to recent global events. One of the biggest changes will be the entire downtown parade route remaining closed until the last entry crosses the finish line at the east end of 6th Avenue while police monitor the perimeter. Security will also be tight in Stampede Park, with cameras all over – some visible, some hidden – and the same can be said of Stampede security and city police.
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".
