“In the Northwest Territories, we look at fur as an industry that provides local people with an income,” says Francois Rossouw, manager of fur marketing and traditional economy for the territorial government. That’s certainly true in Colville Lake, a tiny settlement about 745 kilometres northwest of Yellowknife. One of the most traditional First Nations communities in the territory, its economy relies mainly on trapping, hunting and fishing.
Eleven regulation hockey rinks stacked end to end. That’s how deep caver Kathleen Graham descended into the Bisaro Anima Cave on January 1, 2018, establishing a new record for the deepest cave in the country. The discovery was made during the latest expedition of the multi-year Bisaro Plateau Caves Project, which is supported by the Alberta Speleological Society and this year received funding from The Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
Glass sponge reefs, ancient Dorset petroglyphs and the birthplace of global communications: these are just a few of the fascinating and important Canadian places advanced by Parks Canada as candidates for UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. The process of identifying potential sites began in August 2016 when, for the first time ever, Parks Canada invited all Canadians to nominate the places they felt were worthy of UNESCO recognition.
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".
