The Barsby Bulldogs need to travel a long way to go play a football game. But it’s also part of getting where the program wants to go, said Rob Stevenson, the team’s coach. John Barsby Secondary School’s AA varsity football team takes on the Vernon Panthers on Friday, Nov. 17 in the Okanagan in the B.C. quarterfinals. “It’s another step in our journey as a group,” said Stevenson. “We started this year, I remember some practices with 12 seniors at them in September.
Mike de Jong sees a new NDP government getting away from what was working in B.C., and it provides extra motivation in his bid to lead the Liberal party. De Jong stopped by the News Bulletin office on Tuesday in advance of the third B.C. Liberals leadership debate coming up Sunday, Nov. 19 at Nanaimo’s Vancouver Island Conference Centre. The former finance minister said the economy has been producing jobs and attracting people who want to live in B.C.
The Clippers just became more competitive. Nanaimo’s B.C. Hockey League team is under new ownership, as Wesley and Penny Mussio were announced as the 95 per cent majority owners at a press conference last week. It’s a little bit early in the transition to know what sort of owner Wes Mussio will be, but I think it’s safe to say this much: he really wants to win. It was evident just a few minutes into my first interview with Mussio that he’s a competitive guy.
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".
