Calgary’s economy is forecast to grow in 2018 for the second time in four years, advancing to a still-not-spectacular 2.2 per cent rise in GDP numbers. In general, new real estate development has slowed since 2015 as investors focused on cash flow of current projects as a glut of office and multi-family space overhung the market.
The short-term future of the residential sector in the Prairies is a tale of four cities – slow and steady in Winnipeg, a reversal of a two-year slide in Calgary and Edmonton and another year of declines in Saskatoon. Though GDP growth, employment and immigration fundamentals are slowly improving, industry players aren’t getting too far ahead of themselves. Caution is the word of the day. Or if you live in Winnipeg, it’s boring, but in a good way.
Client accounts are moving around at Winnipeg-based Investors Group Inc. perhaps like never before after the dealer firm reduced its roster of financial advisors over the past few months. The firm recently parted ways with approximately 400 primarily younger advisors as CEO Jeff Carney continues to put his stamp on the company, slightly more than a year into his tenure. At the end of the first quarter, the company had 4,754 advisors, down from 5,321 a year ago.
@DownGoesBrown For comparison, this is the first time the NHL gave expansion teams a fighting chance. The WHA teams got to protect two players and one goalie. If Vegas didn't obliterate every first-year record, it would be a disappointment.
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".
