He was 43. She was eight. Three years later the young Chatham girl, now 11, is publishing her first book. Called What I Have Learned, the short volume details suicide from the eyes of a child with advice and encouragement for other children working through loss and grief. Zara used her own experiences to help write the book. It meant reliving painful memories but Belengér says writing the book helped her stay positive. “This is my first book,” she said.
While the rest of Southwest Ontario waits patiently for fibre optic internet through SWIFT – SouthWestern Integrated Fibre Technology – one municipality in Elgin County could have it by December. As reported in June the municipality of Dutton-Dunwich is working with Packetworks to install faster, high-speed internet by the end of 2017. The installation was pegged to begin in July and to finish in the fall. So far that plan is on track.
Elgin-St. Thomas’s job numbers have improved since the recession, but many young people are still finding themselves out of work – often for reasons outside their control. Employment Services Elgin wants to change that. Since 2015 the local organization has run the provincially funded Youth Job Connection out of their St. Thomas and West Lorne offices. The program helps youth ages 15 to 29 work through personal barriers to find stable, full-time employment.
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".
