An interactive competition has been created to support our country’s athletes in their quest for Olympic gold. Swan City residents can skate the distance from Grande Prairie to Pyeongchang, South Korea at the Aquatera Community Skating Oval, beside the Eastlink Centre. “We would love to have our small city rise to challenge and see if we can make this happen as a community,” said Jodi Winnicky, past president of the Peace Wapiti Skating Club. The challenge has been ongoing since Jan. 16.
City officials want to hear your feedback with commuting at an upcoming public engagement session. “The City has been experiencing significant growth in the last 10 and 15 years. We just need to make sure we can accommodate future growth,” said Robin Hutchinson, transportation and safety engineering supervisor for the City of Grande Prairie. The Transportation Master Plan sets the long term vision for the city where much needed roadway connections, pathways and lanes are identified.
A heartwarming play opening at Grande Prairie Live Theatre (GPLT) tells a popular story of a young piglet turning a farm upside down. Babe the Sheep Pig opens at GPLT on Jan. 26 at 7 p.m.“The story for me brings back a lot of nostalgia from my childhood. I remember going to the movies and seeing these farm animals speak and I think Babe brings such a good message about how the underdog can rise above,” said director Desiree Klause. The family-friendly play was written by David Wood.
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".
