She sits in a lawn chair around a campfire pit, in the morning shade of a row of pencil-straight pine trees. The large floppy brim of her white sun hat, picked out for her with love by her teenage daughter, curves to frame the shape of her face. It's just past nine o'clock in the morning and her husband, apologizing that he's still in his pyjama pants, steps out of their camping trailer, flips a final pancake onto his plate and drizzles it with syrup.
The story of his life, is his story on stage. It's as if a writer at Cirque du Soleil had researched his inner heart and soul and created a role for him on stage where he could play his true self. Indeed, 31-year-old Trevor Bodogh from St. Catharines is a free spirit. A guy who graduated from Sheridan College with a diploma in business administration finance, then ditched a career path in commerce to follow his dreams of riding trial bikes.
A choir of some of the best Canadian youth voices will perform in St. Catharines next week. The National Youth Choir of Canada, some 40 young people from all parts of the country, will be featured at Knox Presbyterian Church's annual summer concert on Tuesday, July 18. It will be the choir's first stop on a tour of Ontario and Quebec. Ken Hutton, music director at Knox as well as Ridley College, invited them to the city, and they said yes. Simple as that, he 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".
