Wardens in eastern Ontario are urging government officials to support Via Rail's proposed new passenger train service between Toronto and Quebec City. The Eastern Ontario Wardens' Caucus (EOWC) is calling on the federal and provincial governments to financially back the project. Peterborough County Warden Joe Taylor said the caucus discussed Via Rail's High Frequency Rail project during their meeting last month. They decided to create a resolution to show their support for the project.
A charitable organization that provides funding for medical transportation was given an ambulance Friday that went straight to the scrap yard. It's OK though, that's how it'll best serve Global Angel. The ambulance was donated for its metal, not for transportation. The 9,000-pound vehicle was crushed and ripped apart by a giant crane before being baled into cubes at Nurse Scrap Metal. Angles of Flight Inc. gifted the ambulance to Global so it could be turned into cash to support the charity.
It's the second consecutive year that Market Hall has held its own series. Before that, it was simply a rental space. Chad Hogan, general manager of Market Hall, said he was pushing for Market Hall to present its own series since he joined the team. "I feel a responsibility to Peterborough to try and leverage who and what we are to bring these people in," he said. This year's series has about 18 performances booked so far, with another 15 or so to be announced after Christmas.
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".
