Sault Ste. Marie Board of Education's decision to close a school in the early 1970s opened a door for Joan Brown to serve as an education trustee for more than a decade. Brown, 85, died at Prince County Hospital in Summerside, P.E.I, on Monday. She and her husband, Ian, a history professor at Algoma University College, left the Sault in 1990 after 22 years to return to his home province of Prince Edward Island. Brown called the public board's decision to close G.M.
Stephen Mallinger knows what he wants to hear if Algoma Festival Choir is going to add a new Christmas song to its repertoire. The group's music director demands a well-written work that he expects an audience “is going to grab right away,” he told The Sault Star during a recent interview. “ People really do like hearing music they know, so to introduce something, in my mind, it's got to really work,” he said.
Sault Ste. Marie residents can now use Ontario Provincial Police detachment's public parking lot as a safe place to do transactions prompted by online sales. The detachment at 742 Great Northern Rd., is the first in Northern Ontario to introduce Project Safe Trade. Two parking spaces, with signs reading Internet Purchase Exchange Zone, are designated for the public to park their vehicles and meet to exchange cash for purchases made online.
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".
