Two international students at Memorial's Grenfell Campus in Corner Brook are making the best of their holiday away from home by cooking up some of their favourite traditional dishes. About two months ago, Kana Niimi and Hejun Meng discovered a grocery aisle of Asian food products at the local Colemans grocery store — brought in, say Colemans staff, because of a large population of international students at the campus — and the food has helped them feel more at home in Newfoundland and Labrador.
A Corner Brook couple who lost everything in a house fire wants to give back to the firefighters who helped them escape the burning building. Courtney Gillam and her boyfriend, Marcel Janes donated dolls, games and other items to the firefighters' toy drive in Corner Brook on Friday. "The fire department helped us during our time of need. So we wanted to help the community out that way, especially at Christmastime when they need it the most," said Gillam, holding back tears.
Major issues with the ice machine at the Corner Brook Curling Club have delayed the rink's opening by a couple of months. Club president Gary Oke says ice making at the five-year-old rink usually takes about a week but this year it took several attempts to get the ice to freeze. "This exercise has taken us a little over nine weeks. It's been a real ordeal. It's been a hard time with the volunteers," Oke said. Repairs to the complicated and expensive ice plant cost close to $20,000.
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".
