The ongoing saga of a battle for 'fairness' in a funding formula has taken its next step toward a conclusion. The City of Timmins has opted to resume its payments to the Cochrane District Social Services Board, although they are doing it "under protest." A very brief Special Meeting was held at noon on Wednesday. The agenda consisted of a lone resolution seeking council approval to resume payments. It was passed unanimously, although Councillors Veronica Farrell and Rick Dubeau were not present.
There will undoubtedly be feelings of nostalgia for many locals during a Saturday night hockey game at the McIntyre Arena. The Timmins Rock have confirmed that on Feb. 3 they will be wearing the familiar colours of the Timmins Golden Bears in a game against defending NOJHL champions, the Powassan Voodoos. "I brought up the idea at the beginning of this season, of having a third jersey, or alternative jersey night, like they do in the NHL.
The highly popular 50/50 draws at the Stars and Thunder festival will likely have a different structure in 2018, and one that could lead to an even bigger payday for one lucky concert goer each night. The matter was discussed at Tuesday night's council meeting during a Stars and Thunder planning update, after city hall had been contacted by numerous charities and non-profit groups recently.
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".
