Sharau Scapillati’s two-year-old daughter Addison spent much of the summer watching the work underway to build a new splashpad at West Park, near their Powerview Avenue home. The toddler asked her many times on hot summer days: “When are they turning the water on?”“I said, ‘I don’t know, honey. I don’t know.’” Scapillati said. Her long wait was finally over on Friday, and she smiled brightly and laughed as she ran through the sparkling water on an unusually hot first day of the fall season.
“They carry Mexico in their hearts when they come here.”Although they left their country thousands of kilometres away, Joanne Navarro said the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that claimed at least 237 lives and devastated much of the country’s capital city hit close to home for many of the thousands of Mexican agricultural workers who spend the summer months in Niagara.
More than 8,600 students at Niagara’s post-secondary institutions are attending class for free this year. About 4,057 students at Brock University were eligible for free tuition at the start of the semester. That’s about 26 per cent of all 15,743 students attending classes at Brock this year. And about 4,600 of Niagara College’s 10,000-plus students are benefiting from free tuition, too, thanks to new OSAP rules that came into effect this year.
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".
