P.E.I. 's flourishing culinary scene will be on display Friday at the 11th annual Taste Our Island Award Roving Feast. Eight finalists will prepare signature dishes using locally grown food. The dishes will be sampled by 150 people. The winner is selected by a panel of judges who visited the restaurant beforehand, said event co-ordinator Nancy Willis.
Oromocto RCMP are investigating the remains found by a boater on an island in the St. John River in the Jemseg area Tuesday. Cpl. Jullie Rogers-Marsh said it is too early to say whether the remains are human. A call was received at 2:30 p.m. from the boater "who thought they noticed what they thought was human remains," she said. RCMP launched a boat at 6 p.m. and are investigating the discovery to determine what it is.
Veg It Up! is back for a second year and 14 restaurants in P.E.I. are taking up the challenge to create a new signature vegan dish. Organizer Hilary Wood said the challenge was created when a group called Veg P.E.I. was formed. "We just wanted more vegetarian-vegan options on P.E.I. and for that to be more accessible for people looking for that." The idea came after the group saw events like Burger Love and the Porktober campaign grow each year.
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".
