After nearly a year of waiting, Nathaniel Dale and his family now have a better way to monitor the 4-year-old's Type 1 diabetes — not to mention a new best friend. Skipper, a diabetic alert dog, was brought all the way from Las Vegas to his new home in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Tuesday. "It's just more peace of mind," said Rhea Dale, Nathaniel's mother. "He's so young. I find that we really encourage him to label his highs and his lows, but it's a big responsibility for a little boy."
After eight years on council and six years in the mayor's seat, Karen Oldford will not be seeking re-election in Labrador City. "It's a pretty tough decision not to run. I love what I do in my community and I've enjoyed every minute of being mayor of Labrador City," Oldford told CBC's Labrador Morning. Oldford said her new job as a registered nurse at the local hospital won't allow the same kind of flexibility in her work schedule she previously had when she was able to do shift work.
The town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay is looking for ways to cope with a growing number of transient camps on its back trails. "We've noticed it escalate over the last two summers, and this summer in particular it's escalating yet again," Mayor Jamie Snook said. "A lot of the individuals have addictions issues. There's homelessness at play at times. There's mental health. There's no easy answer." In a recent update to the town, Snook said RCMP identified about 27 camps around town.
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".
