Four male competitors from the Whitecourt Taekwondo Club returned with medals after attending the 24th annual Mountainview Taekwondo Championship in Sundre on Nov. 4. Master Jim Rennie said he was proud of their performance and considered them talented fighters with potential to earn higher belts. "Those four are definitely black-belt material," Rennie said. Rennie explained how each fighter trained at least five days a week, not including any training at home.
The Whitecourt Minor Hockey Association hosted its November Hockey Camp for young athletes at the Scott Safety Centre from Nov. 8 to 10. Marek Babic, owner of Pro Euro Training Hockey School, was brought in to teach the camp. Babic said he has 25 years of hockey experience and played in Europe for 12 years. "I've been doing hockey my whole life," he said. "As a kid, I always wanted the adult to tell me what I needed to hear and that's basically what I do for these kids."
We’ve all taken for granted that trains need to pass through our towns, temporarily impeding motor vehicle traffic. But when you find yourself sitting inside your truck for 15 minutes as a train crawls by, the tolerance threshold is broken. Virtually all residents have experienced this kind of wait at rail crossings, drumming our fingers as they fret over the appointment we are about to miss or their children to be picked up from school.
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".
