It’s been four years since Paul Zits has brought his special brand of daring poetry to bookstores. His first title, Massacre Street, was an experimentalist’s attempt to revisit and retell the story of the Frog Lake Massacre, a pivotal moment in Canadian history. Leap-seconds, his new gift to readers, is less non-fictional in its narrative but no less of a challenge.
Three hours seems like a short amount of time to celebrate a decade of an event that practically serves as the engine of the community. The Community Information and Volunteer Centre is hosting its 10th Annual Volunteer Fair and they’re expecting it to be a doozy. “I think that this will probably be the biggest in terms of organizations,” said the CIVC’s director of volunteer centre services Glennis Kennedy. The event usually comes in with between 40 to 45 booths for different community groups.
Staff and students at Sir Alexander Mackenzie Elementary were joined by a very special guest as they gathered yesterday to commemorate Remembrance Day. Izola Mottershead, the great-niece of Alex Decoteau, attended to read the famed soldier’s last letter home to the assembly. In the letter, he thanks his sister for sending tobacco as he was broke and didn’t have any. “Can you imagine a man smoking and becoming an Olympic runner?” she asked rhetorically, to the audience’s bemusement.

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".
