Sage at at the River Cree Resort and CasinoAs chefs continue to embrace nose-to-tail dining and use locally grown ingredients, more and more people are becoming interested in the culinary traditions of Canadaâ€™s indigenous communities. Here are five places to get a taste of First Nations cuisine. Chef and owner Christa Bruneau-Guenther opened Feast after noticing a lack of affordable food options for indigenous people looking to explore their culinary roots.
Those of us who grew up in Calgary may remember the Kensington of the '80s and '90s — the NW neighbourhood (or more accurately, the commercial district that encompasses parts of both Sunnyside and Hillhurst) was then known for its quirky coffee shops, consignment clothing boutiques and the scent of incense wafting out of shops that sold crystals and new age books.
Summer is nearly upon us and it’s time to get outside. But other than eating and drinking on the patio, how do you keep busy in the backyard? Games like croquet and lawn bowling are fun, but sometimes you don’t want to invest in a set if you’re not sure how often your family is going to use them. Luckily, there are plenty of DIY games that you can make yourself for backyard fun.
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".
