Victim Services Wellington (VSW) is looking for a group of mature candidates to help people who have unexpectedly become a victim of a crime or are experiencing a tragic circumstance. Volunteers are called to the scene if EMS, police and fire if Guelph Police or Wellington OPP, believe victims need practical help after an incident. Heather-Jane Maurice has been volunteering with VSM for 17 years and says while it's not an easy job, but it is rewarding.
A Kitchener man, who participated in a series of ATM thefts in Waterloo region, Wellington County and the surrounding area, has been given a suspended sentence after spending time in jail since his arrest last year. Musie Ghebremichael, who turns 23 next week, is the last of seven people to be sentenced for their roles in 88 robberies that started on Christmas Day in 2015 and continued to April of 2016. Charges against all seven were announced in August of 2016.
Even before the ION starts to move through Waterloo and Kitchener next year, there has been significant investment in the idea and the future of the LRT as the region's transportation system. A recent report presented to the Region of Waterloo's community planning committee shows so far, private companies have invested 2.1 billion dollars along the LRT corridor.
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".
