The signature red glow of the lights of Guelph fire trucks will soon be a part of the past. In a council information report released on Friday, Jan. 19, city staff say that the Guelph fire department will be making some changes to its vehicles equipped with flashing lights this year. While switching out the lights, some red elements will be replaced with blue ones. The change comes as a result of Bill 174, which received royal assent late last year.
It is official — a new high school is coming to the south end of Guelph. In an announcement at the Upper Grand District School Board’s headquarters, Guelph MPP Liz Sandals said the province would be contributing approximately $25.5 million for a new secondary school in the south end of the city. The new school will be built on what is currently agricultural land. The board expropriated the property, about 18.5 acres of farmland at the corner of Victoria and Arkell roads, in 2016.
When councillors come to city hall on Monday, they will not be meeting as city council or even committee of the whole. Instead, they will be acting as a tribunal. A special meeting of council on Jan. 22 will see councillors hear a complaint under the province’s Development Charges Act in regards to a property in the city’s east end. According to the agenda for the meeting, councillors will hear deputations from both the city’s legal team, as well as representatives for the owners of 561 York Rd.
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".
