Ladysmith Secondary School's Senior Girls team won both their playoff games at the AA Soccer Provincial Championships in Nelson to finish ninth for the second year in a row. "Overall it was a great to be there again for a second year in a row - not a lot of schools do that," said coach Kathleen Nicholls. LSS earned a 0-0 draw with South Kamploops in regulation time with 9th place on the line.
A 72-year-old Cedar man charged with attempted murder after an incident in Ladysmith's south end last month will be in court again on May 31. Local RCMP responded to a call on April 19 at 2:20 pm after a report that the accused had allegedly tried to run over another man following a dispute. Both the accused and 52-year-old victim are known to each other. Police confirmed the man had allegedly tried to ram his vehicle before fleeing the scene on foot.
Surrounded by family, friends and supporters of his goal of raising thousands of dollars for children stricken by cancer, Ladysmith’s Carter Puska cut off 14 inches of hair that’s being donated to Wigs for Kids BC at his 10th birthday party last Friday. Carter has successfully raised $5,133 since April 1 and is looking to reach $5,500, which would place him in the top five for individual fundraisers for Wigs for Kids BC – a partnership of the BC Children’s Hospital.
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".
