40 Knots Winery in Comox now 10 days ahead in growth after being three weeks behind during cold spring. Dean Stoltz has more. The cold rains of spring could have been a disaster, but thankfully summer arrived with all the sun and heat Vancouver Island wineries could ask for. "I was hoping to see some heat units because it was going to be a difficult year if it was going to stay that cool and that wet." said Layne Craig, owner of 40 Knots Vineyard and Estate Winery in Comox.
The Airbus C295W will replace the aging fleet of Buffalo and Hercules aircraft currently being used in Canada. Dean Stoltz has more. An Airbus C295W made in Spain by Airbus stopped at 19 Wing Comox Monday. The particular plane is owned by the Brazilian Airforce and is on a world tour of 25 countries that have purchased the same plane. "As you are probably aware we've been flying the Buffalo for 50 years this year so it's nice to see something new on the ramp."
"Well I just couldn't believe it, it was just surreal" said Randal Warnock. "It happened like a blink and then it was over." Randall Warnock was recounting today what happened Monday night when he was attacked by a grizzly bear. "And he was about ten feet away when he came out of the bush and he was on me in seconds." he added. Warnock is a BC Ferries captain and was on his own boat heading to a shift in Bella Coola from Port Hardy Monday night.
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".
