The use of illegal, contraband cigarettes in London has surged in the past year, a new study suggests. The 10th annual study, done for the Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA), says contraband cigarettes, fingered by investigators in a recent fire death in London, made up 35.8 per cent of the market in London -- up from 26.8 per cent in the 2016 survey.
After 30 years in the same location on Wellington Road, The Keg restaurant is moving to a new building that will soon be under construction down the street. Franchise owner Mike Wise has purchased a 1.24 hectare property at 1170 Wellington Road, former site of a Super 8 motel that closed in the summer and has already been demolished. Construction of the new building, just south of White Oaks Mall, will begin in a few months and The Keg should open in the new location early in 2019.
Canadians still scream for ice cream, so London’s iconic ice cream factory is gearing up. The Nestle Canada ice cream plant on Wilton Grove Road, which supplies all of Canada, installed two new production lines this year at a cost of $20 million to step up the output of that perennial favourite the Drumstick cone and Haagen-Dasz, the aristocrat of the ice cream world. But it still isn’t enough.
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".
