CORNWALLIS — Brandon’s former residential school site is located on a picturesque hillside at the end of a long gravel road. On Thursday, a large group gathered at the now-empty lot to talk about transforming the location, and its painful past, into a place of healing. Sioux Valley Dakota Nation has owned the land North of Grand Valley Road in the RM of Cornwallis since the 1980s and it is eager to build a healing lodge on the site.
It’s going to be a hot one this weekend with Environment Canada calling for sunny skies and highs of 30 C Saturday and Sunday. But, there’s no need to sweat because there are lots of ways to cool down around town. Ice cream is a staple on a hot summer day, so why not grab a cone from The Batchery, Brandon’s newest stop for cool treats. Owner Trinda Collister makes all the ice cream, gelato and sorbetto by hand, which can lead to some interesting flavour combinations.
Rumours of Dennis Quaid hanging out in Brandon appear to be true following a sighting of the celebrity at a local restaurant. Anna Beltran is a part owner of Sabor Latino on Ninth Street and she says Quaid stopped in for dinner at Brandon’s new latin restaurant on Friday night. "He was here with I think his wife," said Beltran. "We had a short conversation ... He’s a really good guy, very (humble)." Beltran says she didn’t recognize the Hollywood actor right away. "No, I didn’t.
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".
