With a new organics pick up comes the need for many residents to change behaviours. There are mixed reviews for and against the change from pilot project participants. Resident Jim Sevenson, who own two properties in West Park said the pilot left his family and renters pinched for space. He never fills the full size organics bin throughout the pilot and foresees problems with the bi-weekly pick up outside of the summer months. “It was just a nightmare and it never got better.
The city manager didn’t mince words, nor spoke in brief, as he looked to regain residents’ trust on their water bills. A lengthy 2300-plus word post written by Troy Fleming on the city’s Facebook page doubled down on the fact there are no flaws in the city’s water billing system and the city does actually care about the issues. He pointed to three factors that are keeping this issue at the boiling point: 1.) social media groups (Fort Sask Informed and Fort Sask Water Wars on Facebook), 2.)
With the roll out of the Fort’s new solid waste collection service in June, city staff believe residents will be able to change their habits and get on board. The new curb side waste, recycle and organics program starting June 4, will not only be a transition to a new service but a transition for how residents sort their garbage, which will bring challenges but the city is prepared to address that. “Change is possible and the change will be beneficial.
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".
