KAMLOOPS — It started as a group of moms collecting donations on Facebook, and quickly grew into the largest donation centre for wildfire evacuees in Kamloops. The independent donation centre has been running out of the Sandman Signature Hotel since July 9, and now it's moving again. "We need the space," said co-founder Jamie Maclean. "We've kind of outgrown this room, and the Sandman has a banquet, and Moxie's has a banquet coming in for four days.
KAMLOOPS — 11 days into the wildfire related state of emergency in B.C. and fire crews are getting a clearer picture of what they are up against. An unstable airmass is moving into the Interior Thursday and rain is expected, but the latest models suggest it won't be enough to break down the fire danger rating. Only a few milimetres of rain is expected later this week, not enough to make a big difference to the fire situation and lightning is expected with the unstable airmass as well.
KAMLOOPS — Christy Clark spent her last few hours as premier at the Emergency Reception Centre in Kamloops. Clark met with evacuees and volunteers outside the Sandman Centre in Kamloops this morning. The former premier says people continue to tell her how grateful they are for the help they have received in Kamloops. "When I got here a lady from Williams Lake, I think she's 80, said to me, 'I have been treated like royalty,' Clark said.
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".
