It’s as much a benefit for the students, who glean a bit of life wisdom, and practice patience when portering the seniors and wheelchairs between bus and classroom each visit. “Some children don’t live near their grandparents, or don’t have them as part of their everyday life, so this can fill a need for them too. They don’t even realize what they’re missing, but there’s a desire to make that connection,” Groten says.
St. Albert doesn’t have a dedicated food truck culture they way Edmonton does. Regulations in Edmonton allow trucks to set up for business on city streets and to congregate at spots like Sir Winston Churchill Square. Here, a pilot project a couple of years ago didn’t result in any set regulations about where and when a food truck can operate, so the vague situation has left some truck operators frustrated.
“Food is a right, not a privilege. Everyone should feel they can access inexpensive local ingredients to help create healthy meals for themselves and their families,” Mardell says. “Food banks do their best with our monetary donations to buy bulk potatoes, carrots and other fresh, local produce, but we can also help consumers up their food skills – to learn how to stretch food dollars and prepare healthy meals using high quality, shelf-stable foods (peas, lentils, beans, etc.)
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".
