Throughout history, quilts have been used to keep people warm at night and to provide comfort. They can be things of beauty, with intricate designs, or they can be utilitarian, but at the end of the day they each tell a story. There's an organization in Canada that provides quilts for those with cancer. Victoria's Quilts was started in the United States in honour of Victoria Morrison, a cancer patient.
When you leave this mortal coil, with luck, you will be leaving it with few regrets and wishes unfulfilled. There is an organization in Nova Scotia that is designed to ensure that senior Nova Scotians’ wishes do not fall by the wayside. “A few years ago, my co-founder, Katie Mahoney, was nominated to do an act of kindness,” Cara Boudreau, of the We Are Young Association, says. “She decided to take a senior out for a day of activities that were solely focused on this lady.
On June 12, the replica of the 19th century flume house and turbine chamber which served the Shubenacadie Canal received a new addition — a time capsule which will be opened in 50 years. The replica is located on Prince Albert Road, opposite Pleasant Street, in Dartmouth. “We had scheduled the event for June 9, but made the decision to cancel because of the forecast and we were glad we did,” Doug Brownrigg, the chair of the Shubenacadie Canal Commission said. “The weather was perfect.
@SarahRitchieCTV@NSSchoolBoards he's got a good point. The premise of the Royal Commission on Health Care in 1989 was to bring health care closer to home. We're now seeing that pulling in admin to Halifax is not working.
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".
