When Ken Walmsley believes in a cause, he throws his heart into it. At the fourth annual Curl for Prostate Cancer Research Bonspiel, Walmsley will throw rocks, too. Walmsley expects around 130 others to join him as the London Curling Club raises money for prostate cancer research and awareness. “Everybody knows somebody affected by the disease and they are generous,” said Walmsley. “Men don’t pay attention to their health.
Playwright Allan Stratton’s farce Nurse Jane Goes to Hawaii offers a ray of sunshine from the title character and a new disaster every time the doorbell rings. The play, being produced by London Community Players (LCP) Jan. 18-28 at the Palace Theatre, “is like all farce,” said director Mark Mooney. “It takes normal people and puts them into a normal setting and then puts them into incredibly contrived and convoluted situations. “Farce is stuffed comedy,” he continued.
A new history-preserving installation at the Central Library downtown brings to mind the old adage, “One person’s junk is another’s treasure.”An ornate façade from the former Marshall Bros. Tea Company on Dundas Street swung between the two descriptions before landing in a place of distinction on the third floor. Three organizations are responsible for the exhibit: The library, the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario London Region (ACO), and Museum London. It's being officially unveiled Thursday.
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".
