The new mayor of Happy Valley Goose Bay says the town hopes that a major announcement can be made very soon about bringing better water, which supplies 5 Wing Goose Bay base, to people who live in parts of town which rely mainly on a much-criticized municipal water supply. "We want to know exactly what it's going to cost us [and] where the money's going to come from," Wally Andersen told the CBC.
A single mother in Happy Valley-Goose Bay is joining a chorus of voices across the country who say they are being unfairly treated by the Canada Revenue Agency. Samantha Morgan says she was stripped of the benefits for her child after her divorce and was told she owed the government tens of thousands of dollars. "It's sad how they are picking on single mothers," Morgan said. Morgan is not alone.
Aries Benuen is happy to be getting back on the ice with his friends in Happy Valley-Goose Bay's Lake Melville Xtreme minor hockey league. A woman offered up housing for him and his grandfather to live in the town after seeing a CBC story about Aries being disallowed from the league because of residency problems. "She told me she got a place, to rent. I couldn't say nothing. I was speechless," said Sebastian Benuen. "I don't know her. I never met her before … We were so happy."
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".
