Yukon's first baby of 2018 was born at 6 a.m. Monday morning. Genesis Mikhaila Many Grey Horses is Karen Pye's first child. The nurse told Pye her daughter was the first baby to be born in the Yukon in 2018. "I was kind of ecstatic," Pye said. "I was shocked. I was surprised. And happy." The Whitehorse hospital maternity ward was quiet on New Year's Eve. Pye said only her and another woman were there. When her doctor told Pye her due date was Jan. 1, she knew she wanted a unique name for the baby.
The Champagne and Aishihik First Nations has a long-term vision: to have citizens born and raised with Southern Tutchone as their mother tongue, and have people so fluent in it that it will no longer have to be taught in Yukon schools. Stephen Reid, who goes by his traditional name Khasha, says he envisions this happening in 15 years. "We've never been in this position before ... to have to teach our people their own language," says Khasha.
Environment Canada is confirming what Yukoners already know: it's cold outside. "It's unbearable, it's brittle," said Grow Brodersen, who lives in Watson Lake, which was listed as the coldest place in Canada on Friday morning at -45 C.Brodersen says Watson Lake, pop. 600, usually gets a cold snap in February, but it's unusual to have one this early in the winter. Extreme cold alerts are in effect for Watson Lake, Faro and Ross River, Yukon.
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".
