The Alberta Party says it’s the best choice to fill the “missing middle” in Alberta politics, after their annual general meeting saw a huge spike in attendance over the weekend. The party’s annual meeting saw about 400 people attend on Saturday, compared to only about 60 last year. “The scale of it is remarkable,” former leader Greg Clark told Metro, who recently stepped down to help take the party to the "next level”.
Same as alcohol, storefront pot shops will be privately owned and operated, and will be licensed by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission. The province says pot will only be sold to people 18 and over, and they have ways to verify a person’s age both at the point of sale and the point of delivery. But the stores will not be allowed to sell alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs, tobacco or food products, and will have to be located a minimum distance from schools.
Just a day after Edmonton City Council’s first full meeting, Ward 4 Coun. Aaron Paquette wasn’t expecting to be asked to raise the Métis Nation flag inside City Hall for the first time. But with Mayor Don Iveson recovering from an injury, it made sense for Edmonton’s first Métis councillor to fly the flag for Métis Week in Edmonton.
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".
