Her nails are starting to detach from her toes. Her knee hurts. She is tired, sweaty at the end of every day. The 35-year-old woman from Fonthill is running the entire 895 kilometres of the Bruce Trail, a marathon a day from Tobermory to Queenston, to raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The plan is to finish at Queenston Heights on Canada Day.
He leads children on hikes along the Bruce Trail. He can light a fire with wet wood and one match. “It's called a barbecue lighter,” he says with just a hint of a smirk. He can run (and keep up) with a bunch of five to seven-year olds. “But not far,” he says. He's taken Scouts on canoe trips to Algonquin. Repaired outhouses and cleaned windows. And he's attended more gone home ceremonies than he would like for Scouter friends who have died.
Walk in and get same-day, in depth mental health counselling. It's coming to St. Catharines one day a week, every Tuesday starting July 11 at the new Branscombe Mental Health Centre on Fourth Avenue. The idea is to catch people when they're most ready and keen to make a change in their lives, rather than making them wait for weeks, said Mary Barzyk-Livingston, clinical education manager at the Canadian Mental Health Association Niagara. “It gets people at the time of need,” said Barzyk-Livingston.
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".
