Open Hearth Park in Sydney is finally getting an outdoor skating rink. The Cape Breton Regional Municipality is installing a 30-metre by 17-metre mechanically-chilled ice surface near the park's canteen and parking lot. The project is a component of the CBRM recreation department's Taste of Winter Festival. "Through public consultation, we saw that skating was No. 1 on people's minds as to a winter activity that they loved to do," said recreation program co-ordinator Joe Costello.
Mild temperatures, wind and rain over the weekend took a toll on ski trails across Nova Scotia. The North Highlands Nordic cross-country ski facility in Cape North, Cape Breton, lost 30 centimetres of base and went from having 12 kilometres of groomed trails down to one. "Lots of hard work and dedication, for sure, melted away," ski-room manager Mallory Grover said Monday.
A Cape Breton church that operates popular youth centres in Sydney and Glace Bay has created an internship program for young people who want to work in youth ministry. Lighthouse of Cape Breton launched the Discipleship Adventure School in September. "It's something we've been dreaming about doing for years," said David Sawler, lead pastor with Lighthouse and executive director of Undercurrent Youth Centre.
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".
