The president of Mine Mill Local 598/Unifor said a deal is close to being reached that will see minimum staffing standards established in the province's long-term care homes. The union represents a number of employees at Villa St. Gabriel in Chelmsford and the Elizabeth Centre in Val Caron. Members spent much of Friday protesting outside those two facilities. Anne Marie MacInnis said the idea is to apply pressure to the province. “We've never been this close,” she said.
A $200,000 donation from Desjardins Group brings the NEO Kids Foundation another step closer to to building its health centre at Health Sciences North. Once a new facility for NEO Kids is built, it will accommodate new clinics, services and more pediatricians to care for children in Northeastern Ontario. The demand for pediatric care in Northeastern Ontario is growing. Last year, there were 35,000 patient visits for NEO Kids.
With a $150,000 fundraising goal to install an elevator at L'Arche Sudbury, the organization is grateful for any donation to help them realize that dream. The federal government answered that call on March 7 with a $50,000 grant through the Enabling Accessibility Fund. Jennifer McCauley, community leader, L'Arche Sudbury, said when the home on Roy Avenue was built in 2001, they knew accessibility was always going to be an issue, and that has remained a priority for them since.
@GarsonLionsClub Hi, I'm a reporter with Northern Life. I saw a Facebook post about a trailer containing toys that was broken into, and all the toys stolen? Looking to verify and talk to someone about it, if possible. Contact info: 705-673-5667 ext. 373.
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".
