The Spanish introduced the kalesa to the Philippines in the 18th century when they occupied the area. What exactly is a kalesa? It’s a horse (or donkey) drawn calash type of carriage. Basically, any carriage with a folding hood became known as a calash. If the Spanish introduced the calash type of carriage to the Philippines, did they also introduce horses?

Before World War II, Fort Nelson, British Columbia, was a fur trading post that had changed little in 135 years. Change, when it happened, arrived overnight. Canadian government airplanes replaced sled dogs when an airport was built, in 1941, as part of the Northwest Air Staging Route. US Army troops took over from the trappers, pushing their way through the Northern muskeg, building the Alaska Highway in 1942.
A traditional English pub was the focal point of community life. Here, you could drink your “pint,” relax and trade stories with friends, even make a deal or two. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan’s, popular Winston’s English Pub & Grill captures the traditional pub atmosphere as well as adding its own unique spin on English cuisine. Saskatchewan, especially in its many small towns (I live in one of our 400+ towns and hamlets), has long valued the centuries-old English pub tradition.
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".
