Provincial Health Minister Eric Hoskins says his government is doing everything possible to stop violent incidents from occurring at a Penetanguishene facility that houses some of Ontario’s most dangerous forensic patients. During a telephone interview this week to highlight the province’s new plan to fund drugs for those younger than 25, Hoskins waded into the goings-on of the Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care.
If only this program had existed years ago. At least that's what arts' majors with experience attending Grade 12 summer school math classes must be thinking about the Simcoe County District School Board's STEAM summer camp. The three-week program is now underway at various locations across the county, including Orillia's Harriett Todd Public School, with an aim to give students going into grades 2 and 3 a leg up in their math skills thanks to a fun and innovative approach.
Ramara Township isn’t asking for the house or even joint custody; it just wants divorce. But Mayor Basil Clarke said it’s been frustrating, at best, as the municipality tries to separate itself from the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) after council voted last year to leave the regional body effective Jan. 1 as a cost-saving measure.
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".
