Opposition MPPs continued to hammer Ontario Liberals this week about doing nothing to stop the closing of long-term cardiac rehab in London. London West MPP Peggy Sattler took aim Wednesday at the Kathleen Wynne government and accused Health Minister Eric Hoskins of aiming low when he compared care here to what is offered in the United States.
Public health officials in London are close to selecting a permanent site for supervised overdose prevention site, a move meant to stem a surge in overdoses that over the recent holidays reached especially alarming levels. From Christmas Day to New Year’s Day, nine people were rushed to local ERs after overdosing — more than any other city in Ontario, including Toronto, Ottawa and the municipalities that make up the GTA.
A likely budget battle was being fought being closed doors Thursday night as public health officials in London were expected to debate whether to move to cheaper digs or heed the warning of county officials to stay put on prime real estate near the city’s core. At stake in the near term is $500,000. That’s how much extra the Middlesex-London Health Unit would pay annually by Year 5 if it were to stay in a 1958 building owned by Middlesex County at the northwest corner of King and Ridout streets.
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".
