Athletes were on the basketball court vying for a spot at the Special Olympics provincial games today. For the first time ever, a Special Olympics Ontario qualifier for secondary school sports was held in Timmins, with the three-on-three basketball games being played at Roland Michener in South Porcupine. Nine teams competed in two divisions to qualify for a spot at the provincial event in Peterborough at the end of the school year.
A group concerned about the future of Porcupine Lake is talking to the Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA). With sewage being bypassed into the lake, the odour, potential risks for health and the environment, and the overall future of the lake are some of the worries that the group, which includes Porcupine and South Porcupine residents, has. Recently, they met with CELA, a non-profit specialty legal clinic funded by Legal Aid Ontario, to look at potential options to clean up the lake.
By making the right business decisions, Marc Lauzier is hoping to put Porcupine Gold Mines in a good position for the future. Lauzier, the mine general manager, was the featured speaker at the Timmins Chamber of Commerce’s Inside their Business event at the Dante Club. He gave guests a peek at what’s happening at Goldcorp’s projects in the area, their involvement in the community, and recruitment challenges. In 2017, the Dome underground was closed.
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".
