With bike thefts on the rise in Calgary, a cycling enthusiast is offering some tips to keep yours safe. "I look at any bike, whether it's your $200 Kijiji bike or it's your $10,000 racing bike, that bike has a value to you," Bob Grunewald, marketing director of Bow Cycle and Sports, told the Calgary Eyeopener this week. "Yes, you might not buy the most expensive lock, but if that's your source of commuting or that's just the bike you love to go for a ride on, you have to protect it."
Slightly more people moved into Calgary in the past year, after a period of thousands leaving, according to city census results, released Thursday morning. The 974 resident gain from net migration is in contrast to 2016, when Calgary saw a negative net migration — losing about 6,500 residents. The city currently has a population of 1,246,337, an increase of 0.90 per cent, or 11,166 people, from last year.
Fires and floods will become more severe and more frequent in Western Canada — and insurance companies should take notice, a Calgary climate change scientist says. "It's on everyone's mind this week," Shawn Marshall, Canada Research Chair in Climate Change at the University of Calgary, told CBC News on Tuesday. Dozens of wildfires are burning across British Columbia, forcing more than 47,000 people from their homes and filling much of Western Canada with smoke.
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".
