I just finished reading the One Book, One Community selection for Waterloo Region for 2017. It is written by Wayne Grady, and it is called . The book is about racism in Canada, and it is mostly set in Windsor and Detroit. The book takes place mostly during WWII, and the years following. It explores what it means to be white and black in the society. One couple has a baby, and the boy is white, although both his parents are black. The meaning of the book is found in the story that is told.
August has just arrived, and without fail, the goldenrod is starting to flower. That means we are sailing toward autumn … my favourite season. But for now, we will enjoy these hot summer days while we can. I was in the garden this morning doing just that while picking green and yellow beans and weeding the onion patch. Today’s recipe is all about summer. It is Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Dessert. I know, I can hear you say that I don’t eat much ice cream because it gives me brain freeze.
It can be the bane of a good harvest: the killer frost, and yet it is unfortunately a feature of the frigid Canadian landscape. While it is a problem as old as time, a local biotechnology company has been recognized for its innovative work in crop-protection. Start-up Innovative Protein Technologies (IPT) was among the big winners at the Velocity Fund Finals held last week at the University of Waterloo, taking home a $25,000 prize. Velocity is a comprehensive entrepreneurship program at Waterloo.
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".
