Residents of Bowness are being asked for input on a flood protection barrier the city plans to build in their community. The city is holding a public meeting from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday at the Bowness Community Association (7904 43 Ave. N.W.) about the flood barrier, which is designed to protect low-lying parts of the northwest Calgary community against floodwater from the Bow River. Dozens of homes in the Bow Crescent area were heavily damaged by the 2013 flood.
Providing fire protection for the runways at the Calgary International Airport is a money-loser for the City of Calgary. Fire chief Steve Dongworth won't disclose how much the Calgary airport authority annually pays the city for staffing its fire station. But he does say that the yearly payment falls $500,000 short of the city's actual costs.
The Calgary Fire Department has put its third medical response unit into service in the city. The medical response units started in 2015 as part of a pilot project. Firefighters are trained first responders and can often get to a call before EMS arrives to start providing medical assistance to patients. To keep from having to deploy the larger fire engines to the thousands of medical calls the department gets every year, CFD started running two specially equipped SUVs to help save on resources.
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".
