City staff are working to find a suitable site to relocate Veridian Connections in an effort to free up space so development of the new police station can start at College Street East. Relocation efforts hit a snag recently when city council sided with residents who protested the relocation of Veridian’s heavy trucks and equipment to a vacant lot, which residents contend should remain green space. “There are a few more options out there,” said city manager Joel Carr-Braint.
City hall will soon know what it will cost to bring docking services at Victoria Harbour back into operation. “I not going to speculate (on budget required) at this time, there will be repairs and upgrades,” said city director Mark Fluhrer, of shoreline and infrastructure damaged sustained due to rising waters this year. “There is shoreline damage, there are docks displaced and anchors moved. We don’t have an exact number yet.”Dockage revenue will also take a hit.
The Kenhteke Cannabis Association is pushing back against the Mohawk band council and Tyendinaga police. The association is hosting a meeting on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Reserve to address recent statements about the legality of marijuana dispensaries in the community. “We uphold our people’s traditional decision making process through our Clans, Nation, and Confederacy,” a statement released by the group reads.
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".
