Riverside Country Club has taken steps to solve what it calls a health and safety issue, by inviting hunters to thin a troublesome population. The golf course says it's overwhelmed with Canada geese. The president of the golf course points to a situation five years ago, when Edward Reevey says they were visited by a gaggle of 1,000. He says the birds left behind so many droppings, it became an unsafe environment for a maintenance worker.
A St. George man has become the envy of New Brunswick birdwatchers after a snowy owl perched in front of his truck while he ate a Junior Chicken outside a McDonald's in Saint John. Josh Comeau, who stopped by the fast food restaurant on Main Street late Friday night, after visiting a friend, said he heard a loud "whoosh." At first thinking it was just a gull, Comeau went back to his meal, only to discover a short time later that a snowy owl had landed in front of him.
For some golfers, it's not time to call it quits until the golf course closes for the winter. Frost prevented golfers from going out on the links until 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Westfield Golf and Country Club, outside the town of Grand Bay-Westfield. But once the pro shop opened, hardy golfers came out in droves for the final day of the season. "We have about 20 golfers out here today" said Stephen Leblanc, the club's head pro.
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".
