A shuttered golf course in Kamloops could become the city's first outdoor education park if the Kamloops Naturalist Club has its way. The group is working with the city to start consultations on what should happen to the site of the former McArthur Island Golf Course. Club members hope the course could be converted relatively cheaply into an outdoor learning space. "Think of a provincial park, but with guided tours, group activities, classes," said naturalist club member Jesse Ritcey.
A Kamloops couple took to Facebook to express their sadness after finding out that a family of bears caught in their backyard would be put down. Todd and Roxanne Angell moved to the Kamloops neighbourhood of Juniper Ridge, so they could be closer to nature and see wildlife in their backyard. "It's just kind of the norm for us and one of the attractions to the area that we've enjoyed," said Todd Angell.
The Interior Health Authority temporarily extended hours at its mobile overdose prevention sites in Kamloops and Kelowna over the weekend, after receiving warnings about illicit drugs from Abbotsford Police. Five people died of drug overdoses within a nine-hour period in Abbotsford on Friday, and six people overdosed in Victoria earlier last week. IHA chief medical health officer Dr. Trevor Corneil said this is the first time the health authority has taken proactive action of this kind.
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".
