Chateau Georgian residents discovered Alaska Friday afternoon as part of the Ports of Call program. Residents tried deer pepperettes, bannock and moose while taking in a presentation about traditional Indigenous dancing. They also learned facts about Alaska - its discovery in 1741, the sale from Russia to the United States in 1867 - as well as words in Alutiiq, Haida, Tsimshian, Tlingit and Eyak. The Ports of Call program will introduce residents to various parts of the world.
There was no need to make snow on Friday. Visibility was limited at Kamiskotia Snow Resort, where a group of students made use of fresh powder that fell much of the day. Earlier this season, staff at the ski hill had to make use of machines rather than rely on Mother Nature. Eric Philipow, the hill's general manager, said snow-making is “crucial, especially this season.”He said little snow fell at the beginning of winter, then December's cold snap limited snowfall, too.
Lynn Glazer was about nine years old when she bought her first chicken for two dollars from a neighbour. “I really loved animals,” said Glazer, who lives outside Hearst. “Being a farmer is not something you wake up one day and you'd just like to be a farmer. It's kind of like in you. “It was a passion for me to take care of her, to eat that first egg she laid.”Glazer doesn't have any chickens these days, but that's not by choice.
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".
