Rob Fleming took some time away from discussions with school district officials to hand out library cards to 3rd graders at Westmount Elementary. Westmount has been identified by the school district as one of its priority capital projects, with the school's population outgrowing the facility. "I have to say it was very disappointing to come into government and see that there was very little under development by the previous government," Fleming said.
KAMLOOPS — The office of the Prime Minister will be receiving plenty of mail in the days to come, as families of overdose victims send pictures of their loved ones. The campaign, which began Monday, was created by Moms Stop the Harm, a network of Canadian families who have lost family members to substance use. Kamloops woman Sandra Tully lost her son Ryan Pinneo in January 2016. He took an OxyContin pill, unaware it was laced with fentanyl.
KAMLOOPS — Operation Red Nose kicked off its 21st campaign in a festive fashion. Ugly Christmas sweaters were the theme as the holiday designated driving program, which raises money for Pacific Sport Interior BC launched in Kamloops. Volunteers drive party goers, and their cars home at the end of the night, ensuring everyone gets home safely. It's a program that has been well-used in Kamloops over the years. Last year the city finished first in the province for rides provided.
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".
