Athletes, promoters and fans sent a strong message to a city committee Wednesday as the public was invited for the first time to share their thoughts on Edmonton's combative sports ban. Nearly 20 people from the wrestling, boxing and mixed martial arts industries pleaded for councillors to lift a moratorium they imposed on combative sports events Dec. 8. Brad Switzer became a professional boxer two years ago at the age of 30 and told councillors he doesn't have much time left in the ring.
An Edmonton rule requiring liquor stores to be at least 500 metres apart may be a thing of the past after city councillors get a review of the bylaw in June. The city's urban planning committee instructed administration Tuesday to explore options that may relax the distance required between stores, and also re-evaluate store hours and who should be eligible to get a business liquor license.
A stone frame and hollow belly are what is left of the former Bank of Montreal building in downtown Edmonton. Regency Developments began tearing down the structure at 102nd Avenue and 101st Street earlier this week. The company bought the six-storey building last March. With the bank's operations slated to move at the end of 2017, Raj Dhunna, Regency's chief operating officer, said the company was looking for new tenants.
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".
