City council has approved a new site for the Calgary Police Service's new facility â€” on the province's justice campus in the city's far northwest corner. The area is already home to a remand centre, a young offenders' facility, as well as a provincial correctional centre. The province is leasing the land to CPS but the city will pay for the new facility. The existing unit is located in a building across from the old city hall on Seventh Avenue, which is more than 50 years old.
It's looking less and less likely that Calgarians will have a deal on a new downtown arena to consider before voting in next month's election. "The city is at the table and the city will continue to be at the table," said Naheed Nenshi, who is running for re-election as mayor. "There's a lot of work left to be done." The two sides have been talking for several months. What's being asked of the city to make a new arena in Victoria Park happen remains unknown.
City council is going to ask the federal and provincial governments to put more money into the Calgary drug treatment court. The court is an alternative justice venue for people suffering drug addictions who break the law. Rather than simply sentencing and imprisoning offenders, the court ensures people undergo treatment for their underlying problems. Officials also work with offenders and their families to change their behaviour.
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".
