VERITAS students took a walk and paid to chew gum in school to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis after learning that a teacher's granddaughter had been diagnosed with the disease. A few weeks ago, teacher Catherine Davis's two-week-old grandddaughter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), said teacher Tamara Berg. As May is CF month, Veritas staff decided to pull together as a school community to help out, said Berg.
More people are illegally dumping their garbage as residents choose to bypass the curbside collection program and the Thornhill transfer station and drive to remote areas to leave their rubbish. Illegal dumping has been going on for a long time but has been increasing since the closure of both the city and Thornhill landfills and the opening of the transfer station, says the local conservation office.
City of Terrace now has two rainbow crosswalks. This time in the vicinity of George Little Park downtown. CITY workers were up bright and early the Tuesday morning after Easter Monday painting two rainbow crosswalks stretching across Park Ave. to George Little Park – one crosswalk on either side of Emerson St. This time, city crews used thermoplastic marking material, a blend of paints, resins and other ingredients which is more resilient and longer-wearing than ordinary paint.
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".
