A support program in Guelph's Stonehenge Therapeutic Community is planning to take a different approach to help those who have experienced an overdose by matching them up with a peer support worker who is a former user.
The Heise family knew something was coming, but they never expected to receive a $10,190 cheque and keys to a new minivan Friday morning during an assembly at Huron Heights Secondary School in Kitchener. "I thought there was going to be a small donation to my family," Terri Heise told CBC News. "I had no idea. No idea. This is blowing me away, seriously." Heise lives in Cambridge with her daughters Maddie, 16, and Sophie, 10.
That I don't know my own mindThat I am so weak I bend to the wills of the men in my lifeThat this scarf is on my headFor any other reason than my wanting it to beTrapped in the chains of a barbaric faithThose words are part of a powerful poem by Waterloo high school student Lama Abdallah about her experience wearing a hijab in Canada.
Hey folks, I'm hoping to speak with some of you who live near the Victoria St. bridge in #Kitchener to get your thought on the bridge closing at the end of the month @CBCKW891 . How will this impact you? Tweet or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk!
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".
