Home no More: Chronicles from Pioneer Camp AlumniOntario Pioneer Camp (OPC) is a place Dhanani and countless other people, young and old, call home. For years I have marvelled at the people who are products of OPC. They are able to lead a canoe trip just as easily as a group discussion. They are thoughtful and confident, with huge hearts and deep friendships with each other. This is why my husband and I chose to send our children to OPC.
You wouldn’t dream of going to France without brushing up on your clipped Parisian “Bonjour.” So why would you visit Whitehorse without learning to drop “ Dä̀nnchʼe ?” like a pro?That is “How are you,” in Southern Tutchone, naturally.Thanks to the First People’s Cultural Council and the First People’s Cultural Foundation, learning elementary phrases in some Canadian indigenous languages is both easy and accessible by computer, tablet or cell phone.
Sorry fad dieters, going "gluten-free"doesn't mean healthier for everyone. Amanda Li has been gluten-free for six years since having several anaphylaxis reactionsâ€Żto wheat. Since then, the Brampton, Ontario, registered dietitian has learned a thing or two about what it means to purge a diet completely of the protein. "There is definitely a lot of fad diets out there proclaiming gluten is what is to be blamed for inflammation, weight-gain and mental fog,"says Li.
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".
