A grand-reopening event is expected to be held sometime this summer now that the birth home of the Dionne quintuplets has been safely moved to a new permanent location in North Bay. The historic building was transported in two pieces from its former site on Seymour Street to its new home at the city's community waterfront park Sunday morning. Ed Valenti, president of the Dionne Quints Heritage Board Inc., said the relocation of the home firmly establishes that it will be staying in the community.
An annual fundraiser to help support and promote literacy has become a Christmas tradition in North Bay. “The community has responded so well,” said Dennis Chippa, who has penned a series of children's Christmas books as part of annual fundraiser in support of Literacy Nipissing. The agency this year has produced and published its third book with the aim of raising funds to help support programs that focus on improving reading, writing, spelling, math and computer skills for its clients.
The average annual water and sewer bill in North Bay is expected to increase by about $46 next year. City politicians are looking at adopting a water and sewer operating budget increase of 1.96 per cent, while sticking with the existing 50 per cent fixed and 50 per cent variable rate structure for metered billing. The increase is expected to see the annual bill for an average household that consumes 14 cubic metres of water each month reach $984.
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".
