It’s always a struggle to survive flu season. There i s something so incredibly heartbreaking about watching a baby or toddler suffer from the stomach flu. They don’t know what is happening. It hurts and they can’t control it. The look in their baby eyes, begging you to help, is so devastating as all you can do is just hold them until it’s all over. My sixteen month old son woke up vomiting recently, victim to the host of back-to-school germs brought home by his older siblings.
Driverless cars may soon be rolling through Calgary's downtown streets. City transportation strategists and local businesses have asked to test autonomous vehicles — ones that run without a human driver — on roads that are usually empty in the wee hours of the morning. "Perhaps we're a little bit behind the times," City of Calgary transportation strategy manager Chris Blaschuk told the Calgary Eyeopener. "There are already lots of places down in the States where you can test self-driving cars.
A renewable energy deal brokered by the Alberta government this week earned "a pretty remarkable price" for wind power, a University of Calgary researcher says. Three companies were picked on Wednesday after a competitive, international auction to build four wind energy farm in the southern part of the province. "They got it at the price of $37 per megawatt-hour," economics PhD candidate Blake Shaffer told the Calgary Eyeopener on Thursday morning.
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".
