A three-year, $529,000 program in Sudbury funded by the province aims to help young people break the cycle of poverty. The Local Poverty Reduction Initiative is the local arm of a six year, $50 million provincial program targeted at young people at risk, women, single parents, visible minorities, seniors and First Nations communities.
A Sudbury man has won an appeal in his fight to be recognized as a survivor of thalidomide, the morning sickness drug given to mothers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Doctors later realized the drug caused serious birth defects, including missing and malformed limbs. A program has been set up by the federal government to compensate survivors, and its administered by a third party, Crawford and Company Canada. Crawford is responsible for determining who is eligible for benefits under the program.
A group operating with support for the city picked up 12,889 used needles off the streets in Greater Sudbury during its first month of operation. The Sudbury Action Centre for Youth (SACY) began collecting the hazardous waste in November 2017, supported by $72,600 in municipal funding. The number of needles collected dropped to 3,493 in December, and 718 in January of this year, but the group said snow covering the ground is likely hiding a lot of the needles, which will resurface this spring.
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".
