Oshawa Generals fans could be seeing a few familiar faces return to the ice at the Tribute Communities Centre next fall as the rink gets set to the host the Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders in preseason action. Announced on Dec. 5, the two National Hockey League clubs will converge in Oshawa on Sept. 28, for a preseason exhibition game hosted by the City of Oshawa, the Oshawa Generals and On Ice Entertainment.
The weekend may not have gone entirely in the favour of the Oshawa Generals, but they did recently receive some good news that could be keeping the team’s sprits up. In a statement released by the organization, head coach Bob Jones, who has missed the first half of the season due to illness, says he’s looking forward to returning early in the new year. “I am home now and recovering well,” the statement from Jones reads.
A controversial issue has come knocking on Oshawa’s doorstep. In recent months, the City of Toronto has been wrangling with trying to decipher how to properly regulate temporary, short-term rental properties, like those listed on websites such as Airbnb, with a set of proposed rules released earlier this month. Now, one Oshawa resident is pleading with the city to implement similar rules as she is already seeing the home next to hers extensively rented out by the owners who do not live there.
"In the last 15 years, only three people have died during an interaction with Brantford police. Hill was the officer in every case."
Absolutely amazing work by @wendygillis, detailing tragic impacts on both sides when police decide to pull the trigger.
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".
