The size of the B.C. wildfires and the length of the evacuation orders are having a big impact on plywood prices throughout the province, say those in the lumber industry. In some cases, the price of plywood has doubled because mill and supply routes have shut down for extended periods of time and there was a slower start to the season because of the longer-than-usual winter.
A wildfire near Monte Lake, B.C., is threatening homes and has forced an evacuation order. The fire, which was estimated at 100 hectares in size as of 7:30 p.m. PT, is about 1.5 kilometres northeast of the Monte Lake community, near Martin Mountain. "We are seeing some pretty aggressive fire behaviour," said Rachel Witt, fire information officer with the B.C. Wildfire Service. An evacuation order has been issued for approximately 39 homes to the northeast of Monte Lake.
A man who has left a psychiatric hospital in Coquitlam, B.C. has been found and is back in custody. Terrance Scott Geisbrecht was last seen at Colony Farm on July 21, but a release notifying the public of his disappearance wasn't issued by Coquitlam RCMP until July 24, along with a warning that he might have already left the Lower Mainland. "Without his medication, Geisbrecht could become a danger to himself or someone else," said Coquitlam RCMP in a statement.
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".
