In my career as a certified red seal chef, I am not only a food columnist, but also a published author, culinary instructor, and get hired as a host/MC for various events. However, one of my greatest accomplishments is also being a culinary travel host, and I owe the honour of having that title to a very special lady: Caryn Zimmerman. We first met years ago after one of my live cooking shows. She was a huge supporter of me, and became a friend of mine, ever since.
Elizabeth J. Rosenau writes that she "is going to be giving Horgan and Weaver the benefit of the doubt." I should hope so. Ms. Rosenau is a prominent local NDPer and was the party's candidate in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows during the 2013 provincial election, for heaven's sake. I find her aforesaid statement and the lack of any reference to her party connections in her letter disingenuous and misleading. Intellectual honesty has never been the left's strong suit.
The Ridge Meadows Thunder U-19C softball team won provincial gold in Chilliwack over the July 7-9 weekend. The girls won three of four games during the round-robin portion of the 24-team tournament, and qualified for the playoff round as the number three seed. In their first playoff game, they scored four runs in the bottom of the first inning and cruised to a 7-1 victory over the sixth-seeded North Langley Heat.
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".
