When Will Goertz first brought work crews into the former Beild House to renovate the building to its former glory with a concept of a boutique hotel in the middle of Collingwood, he knew there would be problems. Any time work on an old structure begins, there are a myriad of surprises are in store once you peel away the layers. The problems grow when you restore a historic home, and more so when you are dealing with the efforts of one of the province’s most recognized architects.
OWEN SOUND – Imagine a scene in a parking lot: blue skies, white tent and lots of barking. Anyone near the PetSmart in Owen Sound last Friday would have seen a rush of dog lovers heading for screens with little mugshots of what some people hoped would be forever friends. Without the any music, you can’t call it puppy-palooza, but for Sonya Reichel, executive director of the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS), and her volunteers and staff, it was a weekend to remember.
The business of brewing has grown exponentially in Canada since the days of 25-cent drafts and beer sold in stubby bottles. From Creemore to Collingwood there is an embarrassment of riches for lovers of the hop with five quality brewers in the area. Now the breweries have banded together with the new Beer Around the Bay initiative that celebrates Southern Georgian Bay’s growing number of great breweries and beer working with local restaurants, shops and attractions.
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".
