Albertans will need to take the lead on reform in spite of current political partiesRegardless of how you feel about current levels of spending by the province, regardless of how optimistic you are about the future price of oil, and regardless of whether you are on the right, left, or centre of the political spectrum, the fact that the Alberta government is not bringing in enough tax revenue to pay for the services Albertans want is undeniable.
Taking the microscope to the United Conservative Party’s blatant falsehoodsHere’s how it works. You make a ridiculous statement, create a meme, or stage a photo op, put it up on social media, and let your army of trolls, including far-right news outlets, take it from there. You then work hard to convince your loudest followers that there is a media conspiracy against you, and that the mainstream media will always resort to lies and smears to take you down.
Alberta advanced education minister’s press release offers no specificity towards pressing mattersOn November 30 of this year, Alberta’s Advanced Education Minister Marlin Schmidt, announced that the government would be extending the post-secondary tuition freeze for a fourth year to cover the 2018-2019 academic year. Schmidt also announced that the government would provide Alberta’s universities and colleges sufficient funding to back-fill any foregone revenue resulting from the freeze.
@duncankinney It's actually not unlike Monopoly. You buy businesses and move around the board. The player designated as government sets the inflation and taxation rate through the roll of a dice. That determines cost of 'rent', properties, and income.
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".
