KAMLOOPS — 24-year-old Mike McKenzie is the youngest candidate running for mayor in the civic by-election, but he says he's far from inexperienced. "I was on the national council for the National Association of Friendship Centres, I was the National Youth Representative, I was a director with that board as well," McKenzie said.
KAMLOOPS — Students throughout the Kamloops-Thompson School District will be able to get a little more inventive, thanks to some new equipment. Every elementary school in the district has been equipped with a Maker Kit filled with tools and building materials to help students explore practical solutions to everyday problems. The purchase of the materials was made possible with a nearly $1.3 million Youth Trades Capital Equipment Grant.
KAMLOOPS — Early Sunday morning, Michelle Embury and her two children woke up to a nightmare. A black BMW crashed into their Brocklehurst apartment while they were sleeping, sending glass and debris flying across the unit. "I looked up at the window, and it was just gone, glass everywhere," Embury said. The worst of the damage was in three-year-old Micheal-William's bedroom. "He has no idea how he got out of the room.
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".
