Ultimate Kitchens Magazine and Curated Home by Chrissie & Co. are jointly putting on an excited Design Fundraiser for the B.C. Children's Hospital on Thursday, June 8th at 5:00pm on West 3rd (1637 W. 3rd - the Armoury District just off Burrard). COME JOIN US! We will be onsite playing music! Wine/Champagne will be served inside with chocolate for those who donate to the event (proceeds from the evening will go directly to the B.C. Children's Hospital).
We've had one of the coolest, wettest springs on record. But the long weekend forecast is looking sunny and warm. Guess what? It's time to slide on that speedo!!!! Outdoor pools in Vancouver open Saturday, including everybody's favorite, Kits pool. The City of Vancouver has info for you on its website. Weekend highs will be in the low to mid 20's, not bad, but not hot. So maybe take a robe, and fellas if you are wearing a speedo, watch out for "shrinkage"......just sayin'.
If Ozzy joined Earth Wind and FIre--this song would be their offspring! A dude named DJ Cumberbund had has taken EW&F's September and mashed it up with Ozzy's Crazy Train. The result, well. it's brilliant. Take a listen and have laugh.
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".
