Final costing gleaned from tenders filed to date for the Yardmen Arena redevelopment will be presented to council next month. City director Mark Fluhrer said the project is still tracking on budget and on target for the November date promised to the AHL’s Belleville Senators. “We’re just now finalising all the details for budget,” he said. “We now have solid tender prices in. It’s at about 98 per cent now, so we’re pretty confident that we’re there.
Our cultural exchange with Sister City Lahr, Germany is four decades strong. A cheerful group of 23 visitors from Lahr, Belleville’s twin city since 1972, took photos and talked amongst themselves and with local representatives as they streamed into council chamber Wednesday. Aided by a translator, Coun Wilfried Wille apologized in jest about his weak English before addressing the gathering.
At the push of a button you can now access city transit bus routes, departure and arrival times on Google Maps. Google indicates schedule choices, providing the public with options to choose the bus which works best for them. The method has been used by other transit services and Belleville decided to adopt the tool in order to enhance service for its riders. “This is another leap forward in Belleville Transit’s customer service,” said city Transit Manager Matt Coffey.
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".
