On Nov. 19, college students were given a warning after they were caught smoking in a classroom on the Woodroffe campus. Students may smoke cigarettes on campus but must do so 15 metres away from all entrances and exits. There are also smoking shelters in various locations on campus, including those in the courtyard outside of the N building. Also on Nov. 19, security attended a student who was feeling ill. The student was transported to a nearby hospital by emergency medical services.
Students won’t have to worry about sprinting out the door to beat a nearly expired parking meter any longer — HonkMobile has parked itself comfortably at the Woodroffe campus. The phone app, which launched at Algonquin just in time for the beginning of the Fall semester, allows users to find available parking spaces on a detailed map as well as parking rates from their fingertips.
As campus activities to kick off the Fall semester wind down, the battle against opioids and the fight for harm reduction continues. According to data from the Public Health Agency of Canada, youth between the ages of 15 to and 24 have the fastest-growing rate of opioid overdose hospitalizations in Canada. Algonquins’ Umbrella Project is responding to this data by offering on-campus training to any staff and students interested in the use of the Narcan nasal spray kits.
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".
