The official 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation may have passed, but the nation’s sesquicentennial is being celebrated all year long. In honour of Canada 150, Parks Canada is offering free admission to all of its national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas right through to the end of 2017. Here are five ideas for how to make the most of the country’s milestone anniversary at national attractions throughout coastal B.C. Don a wet suit (you’ll need one!)
I have been trying for a good month to put together a piece about how it feels to be a Dodgers fan this season, which is no easy task, as it has already come to mean so many things. This season is pride-inducing, unbelievable, and unprecedented. It also feels like finally coming home.
Mention "West Van" and what may come to mind are sprawling mansions and the Real Housewives of Vancouver. What you might not think of is a delightful sun-splashed café with an approachable menu. CV Gallery Café is just that—with killer views to boot. Located not far from the British Properties in the Westhill neighbourhood at 2240 Chippendale Road in the former home of Fraiche restaurant, the eatery is located within the CV Luxury Design Centre, CV standing for Chateau Versailles.
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".
