The London Majors are hoping another team in the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) will step up to the plate after their scheduled opponent for Friday's game — the Guelph Royals — folded suddenly last night. London was set to host the Royals at Labatt Memorial Park in Friday's Purple in the Park game, which benefits the London Abused Women's Centre.
It's taken time, patience and some persistence but after overcoming some early skeptics, London's food truck operators say they've become an accepted part of the city's culinary culture. There were early concerns the trucks would hurt bricks-and-mortar restaurants. Others worried they would block streets or create garbage. But truck operators who spoke to CBC say they've turned a corner in gaining acceptance from both the public and council and they're looking ahead to a busy summer season.
About 400 mourners gathered Monday at London's Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church to mourn Sam Panopoulos the London, Ont., restaurant owner who — for good or bad — made pineapple a topping option for pizza lovers worldwide. Panopoulos, 83, died last week at his home, survived by two children and his wife Christina, with whom he recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Friends and family filled the church to mourn a man who came to Canada in 1954 with little money in his pocket.
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".
