The Downtown Guelph Business Association announced this summer it wanted to expand its borders. After feedback from businesses in the proposed boundaries, it appears that growth is set to go forward. According to a report appearing before councillors at the Sept. 25 meeting of city council, 23 of the 240 owners and tenants in both the existing and proposed boundaries voiced opposition to the expansion.
The business case for a new main branch of the Guelph Public Library has been delayed until 2018. In a presentation before city council at its meeting on Sept. 25, Steven Kraft, the chief executive officer of the Guelph library board, will inform councillors that the business case originally slated to come forward now will instead be ready by January. “We just need to flush it out in a more robust form,” Kraft says of the reasoning behind the delay.
Those wishing to use a new playground at Centennial Park are going to have to wait a bit longer. The playground, which was removed in June due to safety concerns, was originally slated to be replaced this fall. However, residents near the park have now been advised that the new playground has been delayed until the spring. For Christie George, who lives near the park, the wait has gone on far too long. “(The playground is) a good way to burn off energy and we need to do that.
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".
