Once again, the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage has found a terrific talent to grace its stage and entertain audiences. Coming up on Jan. 20 is Dione Taylor and the Backsliderz. Taylor is from Regina, Sask., and as a pastor’s daughter learned to play the organ and sing at the tender age of four. “I grew up singing and playing the organ at church,” said Taylor.
In 2017, Bancroft not only sat as South Stormont’s mayor, but also served all of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry as the warden. And as daunting as that might seem, Bancroft said he made sure he enjoyed his duties regardless of what hat he was wearing. “The challenge for me was to enjoy it,” he said. “I didn’t have a day job to go to per se, so I was able to do my township duties as well as the county duties just be re-organizing my schedule.
It’s hard to keep 300 school children all under the age of 12 engaged and entertained— but the NBA Be An All-Star tour team of Quincy Mack, or Qmack, and Scott Jackson managed to do just that. The motivational speakers brought their message of inclusion and fair play to area schools this week and on Tuesday were at Viscount Alexander Public School. “I’m an NBA All-Star entertainer and professional basketball freestyler,” said Qmack.
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".
