Students and their families now know where they will be going to school in the coming years. With little discussion, Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board trustees rubber-stamped a list of recommendations Monday night that will see a number of schools closed as early as the fall of 2017 while others will consolidate. Monday night’s meeting brought little surprise as trustees simply endorsed a number of changes they made a week ago.
They’re not big in numbers at Holy Name of Mary Catholic School, but they are huge on heart. The tiny Marysville school just received silver recognition from OPHEA (Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) for their efforts to enhance the health and well-being of student and school staff. They weren’t alone in their efforts locally as Quinte Secondary received gold status while Park Dale Public School also received silver.
It's Father’s Day weekend and that means one thing — the U.S. Open. I can’t say it’s my favourite major of the year. I absolutely love watching what goes on at Augusta National every April when Masters time rolls around. I also love the pomp and circumstance of the British Open and the pursuit of the Claret Jug. In my opinion, it's the best of the four majors. Heck, the U.S. Open can be like no other golf anywhere else — as close to smashmouth golf as you’re going to get.
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".
