It’s hard to believe that two years have passed since the first Salt Spring National Art Prize finalists exhibit opened at Mahon Hall. People lined up to get in the door on the gala opening night, eager to be among the first to see the artwork chosen from the 1,367 pieces done by more than 800 artists from most provinces and territories in Canada. Mahon Hall will no doubt be crowded again this Friday, as the second SSNAP exhibit is revealed and a month of visual-arts events is kicked off.
Following are statements issued by the two campaigns in the Salt Spring incorporation referendum following the 62 per cent no vote on Sept. 9. From the Positively NO campaign:The real winner tonight is Salt Spring. By rejecting incorporation, 3,930 islanders (62 per cent) showed their support for the principles of local governance and a vision for the future of their rural island home championed by Positively NO.
The Salt Spring Island Painters Guild is looking for past members or the people who may have known them to help put together a 45th-anniversary exhibition that represents everyone ever involved with the group. The celebratory retrospective show called “Our Best Work (so far)” will run from Oct. 28 through Nov. 4 at Mahon Hall.
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".
