A London school board trustee with his eye on Queen’s Park is raising eyebrows with his partisan tweets. Jake Skinner’s Twitter account includes some nasty comments about Premier Kathleen Wynne and retweets of Tory politicians mixed in with items about science fairs and school musicals. Not unexpected for a guy who is a Thames Valley District school trustee with ambitions to be elected as a Progressive Conservative MPP for London West in next year’s provincial election.
Following up on the Renaissance towers and the Azure condominum, the Tricar Group has another downtown residential tower in the works. The company has purchased a property at 32-40 York St. with plans to construct a 24-storey, 245-unit residential tower with ground floor office/commercial.

They call it a “peace bird” and it's seen a lot of action in 30 years and 25,000 flights -- including war zones such as Afghanistan. But on Monday the de Havilland Dash 7 landed for the final time at London International Airport to become a teaching tool for Fanshawe aviation students. The Dash 7 was donated to the Norton Wolf School of Aviation by Trans Capital Air Ltd., a Toronto-based company that does charter flights for United Nations peacekeeping and relief missions.
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".
