Edmonton car share service Pogo is hitting the road—and taking three of its vehicles to Camrose. The cars will be based out of the University of Alberta's Augustana Campus in the town about 90 kilometers south of Edmonton. This is Pogo's first expansion outside the city, and the first Alberta ride share service available outside a major city. In a press release, Augustana Faculty Peter Berg said he plans to use Pogo. “It’s very convenient – a few clicks on your phone and you’re off.
People are praising Const. Mike Chernyk for his bravery after a dramatic video released by Edmonton Police Service Sunday shows him fighting off and pursuing his attacker, despite injuries from being hit by a car and stabbed. "It’s super admirable, I really like, appreciate what he did," said Thomas Dejong, a student at King's University. "That's professionalism, like even at the face of something so out of left field." “I can’t believe it,” said Michelle Krause, another King’s University student.
Almost a decade ago, concerns over consuming trace amounts of BPA, or Bispenol-A, prompted people across the country to throw out their water bottles, and the Canadian government to ban it in the production of sippy cups. But new research from the University of Alberta suggests more study may be warranted of the amount of BPA on the things we touch -- specifically, paper receipts.
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".
