Ganong may be a household name in New Brunswick, but one lesser-known member of the chocolatier family is getting some overdue recognition. A statue of William Francis Ganong, who eschewed the family chocolate business to pursue his passion for botany, cartographer, and history, will be erected on the banks of the St. Croix River in the coming months. In many ways, his work helped New Brunswickers define the physical and cultural contours of the province.
More than two dozen Carleton county residents spent the Friday before New Brunswick Day hiking through deep woods to a piece of the province's history that few people have ever seen. The large metal marker sits in the middle of an isolated swamp southwest of Woodstock, but it marks a pivot point in the history of Canada-U.S. relations. "You can see the monument but I doubt you can get right too it," Lynwood Anderson said as the group made its approach. "It's a bog. And full of water.
There's a Canadian power battle brewing in New England, with the company behind a mega-energy bid throwing shade at NB Power's one-time suitor Hydro-Québec. Halifax-based Emera Inc. is one of dozens of bidders hoping to supply Massachusetts with electricity from renewable sources. Emera said it can sell the state more than five terrawatts of electricity a year through a deep-sea cable.
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".
