As the world recoils at yet more terrorist attacks in England and elsewhere, there can be no doubt that war and the ravages it brings are part of Canada's fabric. The nation has not remained untouched by such tragedies in recent years — Canadian soldier Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, shot and killed by a lone gunman at the National War Memorial in October 2014 — six dead in an attack on a Quebec mosque in January of 2017.
That message is being broadcast loud and clear by Whistler Blackcomb (WB) as skiers and boarders mark the end of the season May 22 on what is traditionally known as Gaper Day. The urge to misbehave and act irresponsibly should be shelved, said officials at WB, because the risk of losing your summer mountain-bike pass or next winter's ski pass is too great. "It's all about moderation," said WB's Director of Mountain Operations Doug MacFarlane. "It's been a fantastic year.
The Whistler Centre for Sustainability is calling for volunteers to host five neighbourhood block parties to take place between June and September. And, thanks in part to the Community Fund for Canada's 150th, there is $500 available for equipment, supplies and food.
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".
