This column first appeared in the Victoria Daily Times on Feb. 14, 1942. On your kitchen wall no doubt there is a big calendar, the right kind of a calendar that is easily seen, and there, around the number “20,” I want you to put a circle. And now I will tell you why this date has a deep significance for the people of Canada. We have many women’s organizations in Canada, amusement clubs, study clubs, handicraft guilds and missionary societies.
This column first appeared in the Victoria Daily Times on Jan. 17, 1942. Momentary flashes of pale winter sunshine brighten the fields today, but the night falls soon, for we are in the short days now, and the gloom of evenings begins at 4. The sea rolls cold against the rocks, and no more sailboats gleam on the grey waters of the straits. Flocks of gulls have come ashore and sit like white stones on the plowed land with their backs to the wind.
This column first appeared in the Victoria Daily Times on Jan. 10, 1942. Never have we had such a year of surprises and shocks, and yet never since the war began have we had such high hopes of ultimate victory. The greatest surprise has been Russia. Some heads are still dizzy after their right-about-face. We were sure after the Hitler-Stalin pact, just before the war, that there was no difference between the two dictators, but on June 22, 1941, we got our answer to that.
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".
