Though the latest Stars Wars movie has arrived in theatres, a video shot recently in Edmonton suggests it might not be The Last Jedi after all. Performance artist Daniel Tamagi, who goes by the stage name FloWarrior, combines dance, martial arts, physics and engineering for a spectacular display. In a video shot outside the pyramids at the Muttart Conservatory, Tamagi appears to have harnessed the power of the force.
Travel and Leisure, a publication owned by Time Inc., has named Edmonton as one of the 50 best places to travel to in 2018. Toronto is the only other Canadian city to make the list. Calgary, Vancouver and Montreal were not included. It's an odd list — some locations that made it are specific attractions like Iguazú Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil. Others are entire countries, like Ireland.
Two dogs lost eyes in recent owl attacks in the Edmonton area, the first on Thursday in Sherwood Park and the second on Saturday in the Terwilliger neighbourhood. The first attack on Thursday morning saw a nine-year-old, six-pound Pomeranian-Shih Tzu cross named Cinder attacked in her Sherwood Park backyard. Then on Saturday night, a 14-year-old Havanese named Scruffy was attacked in the Terwilliger neighbourhood, also while out in the backyard.
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".
