Usually, it’s affordable housing that is lost to redevelopment but sometimes it’s houses of worship and irreplaceable shelter beds. The church at 1805 Larch Street in Kitsilano, which has doubled as an Extreme Weather Response (EWR) homeless shelter for many winters, is up for sale for an undisclosed price and—no surprise—it’s 25 beds are nowhere to be seen in the November 3 announcement of Vancouver EWR shelters for the winter of 2017/18, made by B.C. Municipal Affairs and Housing.
Forget the Internet. The surest way to find an emergency shelter bed in the City of Vancouver is still to physically go to the Downtown Eastside and start asking around. This old-fashioned method has the advantage of being faster and much less frustrating than trying to navigate the various lists and maps of shelters that various government and non-governmental agencies have created on the Internet.
I lost my remembrance poppy in a dimly-lit alley at 7 a.m. this morning (November 1). The poppy was knocked off my jacket pocket when my chest hit the lip of a dumpster I was searching through for returnable beverage containers (I earn money cashing them in). I felt the poppy come loose and I heard the small noise that it made landing. But search as I did with a flashlight I was unable to see the telltale red colour of it anywhere.
While I'm near a plug-in, I'm going to watch the 2nd episode of "Cyber City Oedo 808" (the UK ver. w/ the cool music & the profanity). This 3-episode OVA reminds me how sharp '90s #anime could be. Here's the 1st ep., beautifully remastered, on YouTube. https://t.co/O8wyvkqOC2
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".
