After the province closed the Eastern Kings Memorial Hospital in Wolfville, a foundation was set up to look after the money that had been raised for that hospital. The Eastern Kings Memorial (EKM) Health Foundation started with a trust of $1,000,000. Now 20 years later, the trust has grown to approximately $4,000,000. “In that period of time we have given $3,000,000 to various organizations in and around Eastern Kings,” said foundation chair Sylvia Fullerton.
n Nov. 5, in advance of Remembrance Day, members of the Royal Canadian Legion held graveside services to visibly recognize those who served. Kentville Branch 006 gathered at Elm Grove Cemetery in Steam Mill (outside of Kentville) to pay their respects to the men and women buried there who served. This graveside service has been held annually since at least 2005 at some cemeteries in the Annapolis Valley, according to branch president Mike Samson.
On Friday, Oct. 6, two Canadian heroes met again for the first time in decades. Henry (Chick) Hewett, age 95, of Oshawa, Ont., and Roy Morrison, age 94, of Truro, were crewmates on an Avro Lancaster heavy bomber during the Second World War. Hewett, a navigator, and Morrison, a tail gunner, each flew 35 missions and returned to tell the tale. The men were reunited at the third Living Lancaster Legends ceremony held at 14 Wing Greenwood.
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".
