Cobourg author Shane Joseph has released his second collection of short stories whose theme is people who have been sidetracked off their life’s path through one means or another. The result is that they feel lost, Joseph said — “Human instinct is to get back.”In his 2012 anthology Fringe Dwellers, he was a little more hopeful and optimistic about what would become of his protagonists. “Most of them ended up making it through, or at least there was a glimmer of light,” he said.
Big Canada Day celebrations are planned throughout the country July 1, but the one in Grafton on June 25 gives you the chance for a more small-town old-fashioned kind of celebration a few days early. This is the 26th annual event in Grafton, gathering members of the community to enjoy a parade through the little village and a fun time on the arena grounds. It was originally established by the late Councillor Murial Braham, known for taking the bull by the horns.
An old-fashioned fun fair in Harwood June 23 to 25 is a wonderful way to celebrate Canada 150 a few days early. Rock climbing, bouncy castles, a kids’ parade, fireworks, Larry Williamson listed off the top of his head, and it’s all free. The only cost would be buying a treat from one of the vendors or attending one of their special dinners, the chair of the Harwood Memorial Park and Recreation Club said.
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".
