The warm autumn sunshine showed up at the latest sheep and goat sale at Winnipeg Livestock Auction, and so did plenty of hair sheep and lambs. Producers seemed intent on taking these animals to market before the cold temperatures arrive. Many buyers seemed to be most interested in ewes and the prices ranged from $1.08 to $1.17/lb. A group of 148-pound sheared ewes brought $1.23/lb.
As Oktoberfest comes to a close, we’re letting our in-house craft beer expert Mark Elliot explain how the different seasons directly relate to beer, the origin of Oktoberfest, and more! One of the (admittedly many) reasons I got into craft beer is that when people ask what beer they should be drinking, they are really asking about what season it is, and what the weather is like! Beer, just like the weather, has distinct seasons that match, and many people often don’t explicitly think about it.
Big crowds turned out for the annual Kiwanis Fall Festival Sept. 7 through 9 on the Square. The theme was "Family Tradition," and carried through from Gospel night on Thursday night, Retro Night with a cruise in and concerts on Friday and Saturday. Vendors and the carnival set up on the courthouse lawn, a new event, The Fox Hollow Downhill Derby drew 19 contestants in youth and adult divisions.
@fatcatvapor@mysticl@oxfordteddy@wxgeekdan@Tesla@FT green equals GREENER than the alternative to me, which these cars, including the battery, are. a traditional engine is also not carbon free to produce, you need to include the whole picture. and yes, as US converts to cleaner energy instead of coal that helps the equation too.
@fatcatvapor@oxfordteddy@wxgeekdan@Tesla@FT Not saying batteries aren't dirty biz. Saying that technology is new and will get cheaper and cleaner... and if you compare apples to apples for cars anywhere near the Tesla category, the break even is closer to 2 years, not 8.
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".
