The bounty of the sea is inspiring to any chef — all those tasty creatures found under the waves. Eleven of Calgary and area’s best chefs are set to transform fish and shellfish into their most creative, most delicious soups as the annual Ocean Wise Seafood Chowder Chowdown returns for another year, Nov. 15 at Hotel Arts.
Tucked into one corner of the shopping complex is an anomaly. Only a few doors away from the usual fast-food chains and pizza delivery joints, Starbelly Open Kitchen and Lounge may look similar to the neighbouring eating establishments; after all, like most spots in any retail park, they share a colour scheme and like façade. It is inside the restaurant where all comparison stops.
A major nuisance in the form of a major artery getting shut down for road repairs has become a reason to throw a party for restaurants along part of 17th Ave. S.W. The inconvenient – OK, let’s call a spade a spade here: incredibly annoying, albeit necessary – repairs to the street mean the city is shutting down the stretch from 2nd to 4th Street. Or, in easier terms to remember, the closure is from Pigeonhole and Model Milk to Anju.
On the two-year anniversary of Black Tuesday — the Postmedia layoffs in which I lost my dream job — it seems fitting to eat the burger that launched my food writing career.
All hail the Chuckwagon burger. https://t.co/ebwl194aXG
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".
