A true Stratford fixture is returning to Market Square next month. After nearly a year of being held on Wellington Street and at the Falstaff Family Centre (over winter), Stratford’s Slow Food Market will be making its triumphant return to Market Square on July 9 – maybe sooner. “There will be a feeling of, in a way, permanence, because we now have a dedicated location for our weekly event,” said market vendor and unofficial spokesperson Antony John.
Even after 60 years, the promise they made to keep in touch with one another is still intact. Of the 22 women who graduated from the Stratford General Hospital School of Nursing in 1957, only nine made it back to Stratford for the class’ 60th anniversary celebration on Thursday. While some simply live too far to attend, others have passed away since the group last celebrated a major anniversary, but for those who could be there, it was a joyous occasion.
Following the Pastorale concert at St. James Anglican Church Saturday afternoon, the grand piano in the upper parish hall will forever be known as the Edite Mogensen piano. Fittingly, it was the first piano Sandra Mogensen, Edite’s daughter, learned to play growing up in Sarnia, and it will be in the midst of her daughter’s performance Saturday that the instrument will be dedicated in Edite’s name.
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".
