The city is looking to neighbouring municipalities as potential partners to share the spotlight early next year. While Barrie city council on Monday will discuss contributing $10,000 to the 2018 Ontario Winter Games, slated for March 1 to 4, other municipalities could follow suit with either a financial or an in-kind contribution. “We're really excited about that,” Michael Ladouceur, general manager of the games, said Friday.
It's truly a story that never ages. And that's part of the appeal for a Couchiching Jubilee House (CJH) fundraiser next month, with a return to its dramatic reading of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (99 Peter St. N.). “It's a really big deal for us,” said Carmen Agius, development co-ordinator for CJH, a supportive program designed for women facing challenges of abuse, poverty, broken relationships and isolation.
An Orillia women's shelter could move into new digs next year. Green Haven Shelter for Women executive director Liz Westcott said the organization has already purchased property in the city for a new build designed to better serve its clientele. “We are now in Phase 2,” Westcott said during an interview Friday at Green Haven, noting the Ministry of Community and Social Services had earlier approved the property purchase.
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".
