A city councillor is hopeful the public art for a new infrastructure project will be an opportunity for an Indigenous artist. City council voted this week to go ahead with a $182,000 public art project near a pedestrian bridge on Anderson Road S.W., which opened last year. Council voted in September to freeze its public art program while a review is done but a handful of projects already under development will be allowed to proceed.
The new 12th Street S.E. bridge will open for traffic Dec. 10, reconnecting Inglewood to the Calgary Zoo and the city's north side. The $26-million span over the Bow River replaces the old steel truss bridge that had been at the site since 1908. That old structure was closed to traffic a year ago. It was lifted off its moorings last spring so it could be dismantled.
More money will be needed to keep Calgary's 2026 Olympic dreams afloat and council will learn more about the road map to a possible bid at Monday's meeting. In a report, administration states that some changes in the International Olympic Committee's processes will affect the city's workplan in 2018. The biggest change is that the IOC wants interested cities to submit their bid book by January 2019. That means the book has to be finished by late 2018 and Calgary isn't at that stage yet.
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".
