Shutting the door on open concept schools in Windsor-Essex in favour of a system that builds walls between students would be a "mistake," according to a University of Windsor professor. Her comments come following an effort by Greater Essex County District School Board trustee Ron LeClair to end what he describes as the "outdated" system. "Open concept is not an ideal learning environment for our children," said LeClair.
Amherstburg's fire department is expressing concern about the town allowing hydrants to be painted even though it contradicts the Ontario Fire Code. For more than 20 years the Town of Amherstburg has allowed many of the typically yellow hydrants in the downtown to be turned into art. Most recently, high school students expressed their patriotism by covering them in designs inspired by Canada's 150th birthday.
A spike in amusement ride accidents across Ontario is being called a "concerning trend," by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority. But World's Finest Shows, the ride company thrilling patrons in Windsor with loops and turns at Summer Fest, said many of those incidents are out of their hands. "The only thing we can do -- there's a sign posted [in front of each ride]," said safety coordinator Fred Burgess. "Plus, when they operate a ride, if they start screwing around, we'll tell them.
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".
