The benefits of the Norwich Optimist Community Chili Cook-off are going to reach even further this year, with a twist in how the event proceeds are distributed. Each of the teams competing to have the best chili in Norwich Township will be asked to identify their favourite local children’s charity or program. Half of the proceeds will be divided among all the children’s programs chosen. The remainder of the proceeds will be used by the Optimist Club to continue its programming in the township.
It takes some time to recall all the volunteer contributions John and Adele Armstrong have made to the Tillsonburg community over the years, but the decades of dedication have not gone unnoticed. The Armstrongs each received a Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers from Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada at a special ceremony Tuesday, Feb. 20 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
There were lots of big smiles and handshakes at the Nor-Del Arena Saturday, Feb. 17 as at least 200 former Norwich Merchants players returned to home ice to take part in five alumni hockey games and the camaraderie that followed. Jim Chalkley, who co-chaired the alumni games with Don Hall, said the afternoon was great, with over 100 alumni playing hockey and another 40 “bench staff,” as they referred to alumni who didn’t play.
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".
