Should Dallas Road be a multi-use pathway rather than an artery for vehicles? That's the Greater Victoria Placemaking Network's vision for the waterfront green space and road in Beacon Hill Park. The group has proposed redesigning the roadway to make pedestrians, cyclists and mobility scooters the priority. "Essentially what we've done in the past, as a society, is paving paradise and putting up a parking lot," said Lorne Daniel, the vice-president of the Greater Victoria Placemaking Network.
These are some of the items listed as possible gifts to be packed into shoeboxes that will be sent to children living in remote and northern Indigenous communities. The shoebox campaign is run by I Love First Peoples, a majority Indigenous Canadian charity founded in 2012. Lynn Cole is the co-ordinator team member for the recently founded Victoria chapter of the charity. Cole says the gift-filled shoeboxes are expressions of friendship meant to empower children to succeed in school.
If you have more than three dogs you may have to avoid group outings to Capital Regional District parks in Greater Victoria this spring. A staff report limiting three pooches per person was approved by the Regional Parks Committee. The report must now go before the entire CRD board for approval. Mike Hicks, chair of the Regional Parks Committee, says there have been complaints about off-leash dogs.
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".
