If a Business Improvement District (BID) existed in the city of Melfort, what would it do for me and my business? The answers were wide and varied, but that premise was the idea behind a brainstorming session held in the city on January 10. A couple meetings were held earlier discussing if the idea of a BID were something there was an appetite for the business community and this most recent meeting was the next step in potentially setting one up.
The next step in the journey towards creating a Business Improvement District (BID) in Melfort goes tomorrow night. Those interested in having their voices and ideas heard regarding the direction of the proposed BID are encouraged to be at a meeting on January 10 at 5:30 p.m. at Nickel’s Corner, a meeting that will be different from the other two previous public meetings.
New champions will be crowned at this year’s Viterra Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Last year’s representatives, team Barker, were edged out 4-3 by Team Anderson in the page playoff round. Anderson led 1-0 after the first end. A couple blank ends later Barker overtook the lead with two in the fourth end. Anderson locked the score at 2-2 with a single in the fifth end. In the ninth end Barker went ahead 3-2, but Anderson pulled out the win with two in the 10th end.
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".
