When Frederick Pels opened the doors to the Calgary location of his dispensary chain The Green Room, he had an eye on the long game — at some point, hoping to go from dispensing information and advice to actually selling cannabis products.“The thinking behind the information centres was to make sure that decision-makers knew there were willing and responsible, reliable private companies willing to show them that we exist,” Pels said.
Calgarians were staring down the possibility of a 4.7 per cent property tax increase for 2018. The number was decreed in another era – set as part of a four-year budgeting plan, drafted before the economic downturn became reality. Earlier this year, city council sent administration back to the drawing board, announcing that such an increase was no longer acceptable. They asked for new numbers which would give them options for a property tax increase between zero and two per cent.
If it feels like your kid’s elementary school class size is bigger than it should be, you’re probably not wrong. Data for the 2016/17 year shows 91 per cent of Calgary-region schools offering programs in kindergarten through Grade 3 have average class sizes in excess of the recommended 17 children per class as set out in the 2003 Alberta Commission on Learning (ACOL) report. “I find it quite disturbing,” said Alberta Teachers’ Association president Greg Jeffrey.
That said, lots of “true blue conservative” language was thrown around during the leadership race. It’s not directly deriding Red Tories, but also wouldn’t be a surprise if they didn’t feel welcome. https://t.co/7ZrDiBiRNg
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".
