When you're in Victoria Park for Ingersoll's Canada Day celebrations, take note of the flag displayed at the back of the stage. It flew from the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on May 13, 2013. The 15-foot-wide flag was loaned to the town for its Canada 150 festivities by Ingersoll resident Melanie Harper, who waited at least 10 years for the flag to arrive by mail.
Everyone can be a hero just by doing what they can to help. That was the message Dr. Maria Odumodu shared when she received the 33rd annual Jack Ross Memorial Award from the Children's Aid Society of Oxford County. The presentation was part of the Society's annual general meeting held in Tillsonburg Tuesday, June 13. Odumodu said she remembers when Const. Jack Ross was killed. It was 1984 and Ross was an officer with the OPP who was killed during a stand-off.
The pamphlets have been printed and are being distributed all across Norwich Township as invitations to attend this year's 150th anniversary celebration of Canada Day. Each year the celebration rotates to a different part of the township and Otterville is making the most of its turn with a full weekend of events. Activities begin Friday, June 30 with opening ceremonies at 5 p.m. at the Old Mill.
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".
