Bow Island Mayor Gordon Reynolds took the opportunity in his Dec. 1 newsletter to clear up some misconceptions about the increasing provincial carbon tax’s impact on home heating bills. The carbon tax increases by 50 per cent on Jan. 1, but Reynolds noted that this doesn’t mean utility bills will be increasing by the same percentage. The tax hike will result in an additional $0.0224 per litre of gasoline and $0.506 per gigajoule of natural gas.
Charged with a second offence since 2016, should independent MLA Derek Fildebrandt resign his seat in the legislature? A Medicine Hat-based company brought its proposition to build a two-sided LED billboard in Redcliff to the Dec. 11 town council meeting. Kevin Panko of The Experts LED pitched the proposal to council, whose members were broadly receptive to the idea, but certain amendments to the Land-use Bylaw must occur before the project is officially approved.
Now the December has arrived, how far into Holiday shopping are you? Redcliff town council passed its 2018 interim budget, which includes a 2.49 per cent property tax increase, at its Nov. 27 meeting. The tax hike is composed of a 1.83 per cent residential increase and a 0.66 per cent greenhouse building assessment increase.
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".
