We've had a few hiccups over the past 10 days, including the first snowfall in Labrador, some frosty mornings for many and some very cool fall-like days. However as we look ahead to this week, summer is back on the weather menu, with rising temperatures and humidity expected in Newfoundland and LabradorA warm front moving across the province with rain Monday is ushering in another round of summer warmth for the week.
"What a summer we've been having!" "This must be the best on record!" "This is the best summer I can remember" I've been hearing remarks like this a lot lately, and it's great! We been having a beautiful summer on the Island and we're obviously loving it. That said, when I'm asked about how great the summer has been, I often remind people of the fact that the summer of 2012 may have been even better. But was it?
Happy Monday! Lots of weather to talk about over the next few days, here's the latest…Our late weekend system continues to depart into the Labrador Sea over the next day or so and in behind we have a nice Monday evening and Tuesday setting up across the province. A taste of sunshine and seasonal temperatures will be on the menu for many. As of about noon Monday, Tropical Storm Gert was about 700 km southwest of Bermuda and packing sustained winds of 95 km/h.
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".
