Things are looking up for Chatham-Kent even with poor results in the last Canadian census, according to municipal CAO Don Shropshire. It might take a few years to see a difference. Shropshire was at the Rotary Club of Chatham Sunrise on Tuesday to tout the C-K Plan 2035, a twenty-year project intending to define the municipality for generations to come. The presentation to the Rotary Club was intentional; part of the municipal process involves transparency and community involvement.
It was a blistering Saturday morning when volunteers from around Chatham-Kent made their way down to a little house here. Well, not quite a house – yet. From 9 o’clock in the morning to late in the afternoon a team of roughly 20 volunteers joined Lee Chrysler and Nichole Spall to build their house from the ground up, at the end of a little cul de sac in Blenheim.
Pat Harding stood silently behind a podium in front of hundreds of people, crammed into the banquet hall at the East Chatham WISH Centre on a blistering hot Saturday afternoon. Her family sat a few rows back, far from the most recognizable faces in a crowd that included politicians, academics, and retired MLB star Fergie Jenkins. Two years before, Harding made a last-ditch effort to preserve fragments of history, stories from some of the most influential athletes to ever play in Chatham-Kent.
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".
