A group of mosquito ballplayers is making Simcoe's Lions Park a very uncomfortable spot for visitors. Just as they did 12 months ago, the Simcoe major mosquito Giants won their home tournament (A and under) this past weekend by going a perfect 6-0. Competing in the 12-team division, Simcoe outscored opponents a whopping 80-11. “A lot of it is just preparation,” said Giants coach Jeff Shortt.
With a championship on the line, the Norfolk peewee Timberwolves showed a killer instinct most teams can only dream of. The T-Wolves matched up against Six Nations 3 in a best-of-three series for the Ontario Lacrosse Association Zone 9 crown where the local squad rebounded after giving up the opening goal in Game 1, eventually scoring late to capture a 5-4 victory. Six Nations drew first blood again in Game 2 in Hagersville July 17 but the score wouldn't be nearly as close at the final buzzer.
Not only is Port Dover in the process of getting a new medical centre but the town will soon have its own walk-in clinic. A sign posted inside the current medical centre on St. George Street reads that beginning August 5 the facility will see patients Thursdays from 5-8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon. A note beneath the announcement asks that patients of other health organizations in Norfolk continue to use the clinic associated with their physicians.
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".
