Somewhere amid hundreds of kilograms of supplies, Whitehorse musher Luc Tweddell has a few treats. "I have some desserts my daughters made for me, little energy balls or something like that. I'll be happy to see them," he said. Tweddell will find them when he needs them most: in the cold, alone, in darkness, and a few days out on the 1,600-kilometre Yukon Quest. The race between Fairbanks, Alaska and Whitehorse begins Feb. 3. On Jan. 20, mushers delivered supplies for drop day in Whitehorse.
Developers are moving ahead with plans to build the tallest building in Yukon. The eight-storey building would have 40 condominiums and one floor of commercial space. Glenn Munro, who is an advisor to the developers' numbered company, says it will change the skyline of downtown Whitehorse. He also promises the best view in town. The developers are the same group who built Mah's Point, a six-storey building on Second Avenue, that was completed in 2013.
The Yukon government says it's going to help parents who lost money when the Cheeky Monkeys daycare in Whitehorse closed this week with little notice. Parents say they were told on Friday that the daycare was closing, and they'd have no child care starting this week. The owner told CBC the Canada Revenue Agency had seized all her accounts and she cannot reimburse parents or even pay staff. Families who had paid the daycare facility in advance were asking for refunds.
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".
