The University of Windsor's School of Creative Arts is preparing for the move to their new downtown campus by bidding farewell to the LeBel building through a moving sale. A host of items will be up for grabs, including sand blasters, spray cans and paint-splattered tables and chairs. A preview of the sale Tuesday drew a steady stream of students, staff, faculty and alumni to the building, located at the corner of Huron Church Road and College Avenue.
Highway 401 will be closed in both directions between midnight and 5 a.m. in Chatham-Kent, starting midnight July 18, and reoccurring on July 19 and 20. Ministry of Transportation officials tell CBC News that the closure is for bridge construction at the Communication Road and Highway 40 interchange. Eastbound traffic will leave the highway at Bloomfield Road, while westbound traffic will be diverted at Kent Bridge Road. Police will be on hand to assist with the detour.
Ten years after writing and composing a song about Canada, Ernestine Perkins has dusted off her nationalistic tune for country's 150th birthday. The 86-year-old Sarnia resident, who plays music by ear, copyrighted her work back in 2007 and then filed it away and nearly forgot about it. But after a few serendipitous encounters, her song "It's Canada" has already been performed by a choir and there are plans to have it staged again for the nation's birthday.
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".
