Mental health agencies serving children and young people say innovation will be the key to dealing with a big increase in the number of families in need of care. "This is a public health issue," said Dr. Kathleen Pajer, chief psychiatrist at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. "We are trying to care for the next generation — people who are going to make our society," said Pajer.
A group of young Ottawa women have started a campaign to raise money and awareness to help the people of Yemen — a country devastated by war, with millions on the brink of starvation. The United Nations has made a world wide appeal for the country, which has already been deemed the Arab world's poorest and is now approaching its third year of conflict between the minority Houthis and a coalition of countries led by Saudi Arabia.
The four-year-old snowy owl has picked a corn field in the Ottawa Valley for a second winter in a row and with his arrival comes a potential treasure trove of information. That's because â€” like a satellite emerging from the dark side of a moon â€” Hardscrabble has returned to the land of cellular towers from the Arctic â€” and the electronic transmitter strapped to his back is about to send a major data dump about where he's been since last spring.
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".
