Football Day in Peterborough is happening on Saturday, Aug. 5. The Ontario Football Conference Championship is taking place on the field at Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School on Armour Rd. that day. It's the first time this provincial championship has taken place in Peterborough and organizers are excited about it. Jerry Peters, the manager of the Peterborough Wolverines football club, is also the vice-president of the Ontario Football Conference.
It's going to cost somewhat more to build a house in many of the newest neighbourhoods in Peterborough soon: development charges are about to increase. City councillors voted Monday night to approve a plan to increase development charges for the first time in five years. As long as city council ratifies the plan next week, the new charges will take effect Aug. 1.
Councillors gave preliminary approval on Monday night to start a $22-million renovation of a city-owned property on Webber Ave. so it can serve as the new public works yard by the fall of 2018. Construction can begin by this fall to convert the former Coach Canada property into a public works yard. A new city staff report states the work may take about a year, meaning the yard won't relocate from its overcrowded property on Townsend St. until the fall of 2018.
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".
