Breaking down the barriers that may prevent people from contacting police when a loved one goes missing is the goal of a special workshop Tuesday in Wabaseemong Independent First Nation, about 450 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay. The community, Ontario Provincial Police and the Treaty 3 Police Service are joining forces to host a missing person awareness day.
If the participants in the Terry Fox Run in Thunder Bay, Ont., are any indication, the legacy of the young man from British Columbia is in good hands. Fox, who lost a leg to bone cancer, began his cross-Canada Marathon of Hope in 1980 to raise money for cancer research. A relapse of the disease forced Fox to stop running just outside Thunder Bay. He was only 22-years-old when he died on June 28, 1981.
Fur, fishing and feathers were on the agenda Friday at Kingsway Park elementary school in Thunder Bay, Ont., as students marked National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day one day early. Volunteers and staff from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, the Sportsman's Alliance and Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) set up a variety of hands-on activities, all designed to help the kids experience different outdoor pursuits.
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".
