Metro Turning Point, a men’s shelter located on Barrington Street in Halifax, is Atlantic Canada’s largest men’s shelter with 78 beds. Run by Shelter Nova Scotia, funding comes from the province through the department of community services, but fundraising is essential. “We’re fundraising about $150,000 or $160,00 a year to help pay the light bill, the telephone bill, kind of the operational costs,” said Linda Wilson, executive director of Shelter Nova Scotia in an interview.
The Halifax Mooseheads got on the board first, but the lead disintegrated midway through the opening period after sloppy play. A juicy turnover deep in the Halifax zone helped the Drakkar score three consecutive goals and take a 3-1 lead in front of 5,883 fans. “For sure we didn’t play our best and it was kind of frustrating. We didn’t get our speed going at all,” said centre Otto Somppi, who opened the scoring with his sixth goal of the season.
After releasing music as a band for close to 15 years, Patrick Watson is finally coming to Halifax. "I can't believe we haven't played Halifax yet, this is ridiculous. I can't believe it's finally happening," says Watson. When it comes to Saturday's setlist, Watson plans to be more conscious of the fact it's the band's first time playing in the city, meaning there should be a healthy dose of older songs.
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".
