For the first time, five Chinatown restaurants are joining forces to invite Edmontonians to try out the tastes the neighbourhood has to offer. Usually restaurateurs put on these types of events, but this one is different in that it's organized by four locals who simply love the area and want to get more people to check it out. “None of us are restaurant owners or operators. I’ve been going to the (Chinatown) neighbourhood since I was a kid.
Shy dogs are getting their very own off-leash park. The new spot, part of a dog park pilot project, will be located at Lauderdale Park in north-central Edmonton. “If you have a shy dog or a dog recovering from surgery, any dogs that are a bit more vulnerable, they can utilize that space,” explained Amanda Brown, a parks manager with the city. The new shy dog section is one of many new features at the kilometre-long field on 127 Avenue between 109 Street and 113A Street.
Local skateboarders, BMX and scooter riders will soon have a new local place to ride year-round in Sherwood Park. The Boneyard Skatepark, a new 7,500 square foot indoor facility, promises to be the first of its kind in the area, and the only one in the capital region -- allowing riders to keep at it even after the snow flies. Owner Chris Hartwell is the one putting up the money for the new project, not for himself, he says, but for his kids.
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".
