The RMWB is being well-represented at the North American Indigenous Games. Indigenous youth from across Canada and certain parts of USA are in Toronto taking part in the games. This includes 14-year-old Salima Thibault and 12-year-old Alexandria Karamujic, both from Fort McMurray – competing in many swimming events for Team Alberta. The two have already won 5 medals – two golds and three silvers.
The RMWB is putting its best foot forward, while Communities In Bloom judges are in town evaluating our community. The municipality is competing in the CIB’s International Challenge category against Bruges Belgium, Coquitlam BC, and Holland Michigan. CIB encourages communities to enhance the visual appeal of neighbourhoods, public spaces, and parks through the use of flowers, plants, trees, and landscaping.
Bikers across Fort McMurrayÂ are temporarily losing one of their biggest parks. Starting today, the bike park on Silin Forest Road is closed as the municipality completes a full assessment determining the best way to rehabilitate the park. Last year, the lower third of the area was damaged by the Horse River Wildfire. The RMWB is setting up barricades around the damaged area but is asking the public to avoid the park for the time being.
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".
