In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, organizers of this year’s Canada Day say this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever. Fire spinners, Squamish Nation dancers and drummers, Bhangra dancers, local musicians and fireworks will entertain the crowd, while a market and beer garden are open for extended hours this year. The day begins at 10:30 a.m. with a parade along Cleveland Avenue downtown before the flag raising and cake cutting at Stan Clarke Park an hour later.
A bear and her two cubs were killed by conservation officers in downtown Squamish on Sunday after causing an “extensive amount” of property damage and continuously eating garbage. The mother black bear had been tagged and relocated before, but this time she returned with her cubs and was teaching them how to find food in garbage bins downtown. “We tried to haze them away. We even blocked an entire road so they could get away.
It’s a part of childhood many of us take for granted. Two Squamish students are travelling to Nicaragua to build a school in a rural community to more kids have a chance at an education. Grade 8 students Zoe Carter, from Don Ross Middle School, and Maren Malik, from Coast Mountain Academy, are fundraising to help them get to the Central American country. They will be leaving Squamish in July for Los Campos, a small community in western Nicaragua as part of a ME to WE volunteer trip.
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".
