A Quest University student has been awarded a $5,000 scholarship in recognition of his dedication to academics despite a struggle with chronic disease. “I’m pretty over the moon to receive it this year,” said Aaron Slobodin, who is returning to Squamish this fall to continue studying mathematics at Quest. Slobodin was diagnosed in April of his first year of school with ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease caused by sores on the large intestine.
Not a fan of facial fuzz? Better “shave” your opinion for later, because Friday night will be a celebration of local art and local beards. Marilyn Brisson, otherwise known as the Voila Mobile Barber, has collaborated with some local artists to produce a beard-themed calendar, which is being unveiled on Friday at the The Joinery Cafe.
Concussions can be much more than a bump on the head – sometimes they can take people away from the sports and outdoor activities they love. Yoga teacher Laura Soohen knows that first hand. Soohen was a dedicated rugby player in both high school and university. In 2004, during the start of her final year of playing for St. Francis Xavier University, she was hit – hard – and had to be taken off the field. “I didn’t come through until I was in the training room.
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".
