Anik Leclair may need to pick up a second job to pay her son's hockey registration fee. The single mom of three from Verner was hoping to receive $300 from KidSport North Bay. However, she was notified Monday her family no longer qualifies because they do not live in the city. “I don't know what I'm going to do? I guess I will have to pick up a job delivering pizza Friday nights,” Leclair said.
Any help is appreciated from families trying to find ways to pay for necessary but expensive devices to help their loved ones lead normal lives. Just ask Jordan Lepkan and Corey Glass – their daughter was this year's recipient of the annual North Bay Police Association's golf tournament. Const. Roger Drolet of North Bay Police Service said every year the association donates to a children's charity, however this year they took a different approach.
Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli demanded an apology from the Liberal government today for a derogatory comment made by one of its members in the Legislature last week about Northern Ontario. “We’ve all seen the video. The member (MPP Lou Rinaldi) from Northumberland-Quinte West yelled a Northern slur to the Member from Parry Sound; I was not in the Chamber at the time,” said Fedeli.
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".
