No pets were injured when fire broke out at Lock One Animal Hospital Tuesday, but the business will be closed until further notice. St. Catharines firefighters were called to the north-end veterinarian clinic at a strip mall at 260 Lakeshore Road just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. Platoon chief Tim Ireland said the fire, which involved a filing cabinet, was under control within 20 minutes. A few animals were inside the building but Ireland said the owner got them out before firefighters arrived.
Brock University is continuing to look at its options for the future of Rodman Hall and is turning to a coalition of volunteers to help. Tom Arkell, special adviser to the vice-president of administration, said the informal working group was formed after consultations last year with a number of community groups including artists, business people and faculty. “This was kind of a coalition of those groups that are getting together to help us plot a future for a sustainable Rodman Hall,” Arkell said.
St. Catharines is continuing its war on goose poop, trucking herds of geese out of the city for the second year in a row and using dogs to chase those left behind. Whether it’s winning the war for the long term is hard to gauge, but calls to the city about slippery, sticky paths are down. “There does seem to be a little difference this year,” said John Bellehumeur, manager of parks, cemeteries, forestry and horticulture.
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".
