Around 300 people in Whitehorse came out to support the protection of the Porcupine caribou herd's calving ground at the debut of the new documentary film Camera Trap on Tuesday night. The film, by Marty O'Brien, documented photographer Peter Mather's trip to the calving grounds. The herd of 40,000 caribou go to a small piece of land in Alaska to have calves. The Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation has been fighting to stop oil drilling on the land for 40 years.
A frontline worker for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry says she was fired, without cause. Melissa Carlick, who lives in Whitehorse, was the community liaison and health coordinator for Yukon, Alberta, the N.W.T., and parts of B.C. She says she was fired on Nov. 7 during the Edmonton hearings. Two other staffers were also fired, CBC has learned. "At that time I was shocked," says Carlick. She says she didn't have any indication that she was doing anything wrong.
The Carcross/Tagish First Nation is expanding its farming enterprises. At the beginning of August, the First Nation signed papers to purchase what some people know as the old Branigan farm. The sale is now complete, and the First Nation is talking about its plans. "It's a little over 150 acres of prime farmland," said Andy Carvill, the chief of Carcross/Tagish. The land is a few kilometres from Carcross, down the Tagish Road.
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".
