Ray Laporte has created a school within a school — and learned a lot about himself and his community in the process. About a year and a half ago, the Sudbury artist was commissioned to produce a permanent installation for the Laurentian School of Architecture, based on a style of rock-and-wire sculpture that he has made his own, if not invented. His specialty is fish and, in particular, rock bass — pun intended. He’s made quite a few bass out of rocks over the years.
My heart sinks when I pull into the parking lot at Horseshoe Bay and realize that every flag I've been looking at since I set out from Sudbury was lying. Turns out the wind -- here on northern Georgian Bay, at least -- will not be coming from the west, or southwest, but directly at me, from the southeast. I take a deep breath, pack my canoe, and lash everything to the thwarts.
It's the fastest-growing criminal enterprise in the world, and local authorities and victim groups are ramping up efforts to stop it -- or at least significantly check its spread -- in Sudbury. "Human trafficking is a very serious issue across the country," said Staff-Sgt. Rick Waugh, during a presentation to the Greater Sudbury Police Services board Wednesday. "People tend to think it doesn't occur here, because it's such a despicable, evil crime, and it's hard to come to terms with it mentally.
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".
