Noah Irvine didn’t intend on becoming the poster boy for mental illness and suicide prevention, but the Guelph teenager is promising to use his new-found notoriety to continue to press for change from all levels of government. For Irvine, winning the Samara Canada Everyday Political Citizen Award is one more opportunity for him to push for the creation of a national suicide prevention plan and to advance the discussion on mental illness.
The founder and chair of Guelph-based Sleeman Breweries told local business leaders it is important for businesses to know where they came from and to celebrate their past — of course, it doesn’t hurt if that past includes stories of pirates and gangsters. John Sleeman, who restarted the family business after a 50-year closure, addressed the local business community at a Guelph Chamber of Commerce CEO dinner event Tuesday night at Victoria Park East Golf Club.
A Domino’s Pizza driver says he was not prepared for the response he received when his story about rescuing a cat that had been hit by a car went viral on social media. Tom Bott, a driver for Domino’s Pizza, pulled his car over Sunday night when he saw a woman attending to a cat in distress on College Avenue after making a delivery. “I put my four-ways on, got out. At that point she lifted up the cat and we realized it had been hit and was bleeding,” said Bott.
@steven_petric@CamGuthrie ‘Put on ice’, meaning delay, put on hold. I was paraphrasing you, then followed up with a quote by you: “That’s why I feel the service review should be slowed right down until we find that person, even if that means holding it until next year after the election,” said Petric.
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".
