It's time to don your tiaras and tri-horn hats as the Norwich Optimist Corn Maze opens Saturday with Pirates and Princess Day. The annual maize maze will be open starting at noon until 4 p.m. when families are encouraged to dress up and attend for an afternoon of fun. There will be a chance to hunt for treasure or walk the plank of the pirate ship; and bring a picnic or purchase a hot dog lunch on site; and there are gifts for each child.
The doors will be flung wide open in Norwich Township on Sept. 23 as visitors from near and far are expected to take in the local Doors Open Oxford-Norwich event. Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., visitors can take in the nine sites that have been included in the local version of the province-wide initiative that is Doors Open. The event is free.
There may not be wedding bells, but there will be a tying of the knot as this year's Civil War Re-enactment at Otterville includes a traditional handfasting ceremony. Michal and David Soucie – who were legally married in May – have invited their fellow re-enactors to the Union camp Sept. 16 at 4 p.m. to share in their ceremony, which will be performed by re-enactor Janet Abbott.
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".
