As regional airlines start to feel the shortage of pilots, one northern airline is banking on its own flight school as a solution to the problem. Air Inuit started its flight school in Kuujjuaq in 2012. Since then it's welcomed 26 students, four of whom now fly for the airline. The airline is based in Montreal and services communities across Nunavik. It was started 40 years ago this August and is owned by the Makivik Corporation, the region's Inuit organization.
Former Nunavut politician, Jack Anawak, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for impaired driving in court in Iqaluit on Monday. He pleaded guilty in November to driving drunk in June of 2017. No one and no property were harmed in the incident, but it was his second impaired driving offence and third relevant driving offence, so jail time is required by the Criminal Code. A justice of the peace agreed to the joint submission from the lawyers, which suggested the minimum allowable sentence of 30 days.
There's a bounty on the heads of two large, black and brown dogs, who've killed about 20 caribou near Coral Harbour, Nunavut. Any hunter who takes down one of these wild dogs will get $250 per dog, says the local hunter and trappers association. "There's a couple of dogs gone wild here around town on our private island and they are on a murderous caribou serial killing spree," wrote a local resident on Facebook.
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".
