Fans of the Ottawa Senators got a sign of the kind of branding changes that might be on the horizon for the team this week. Social media was abuzz when it was discovered the team had revamped its website Thursday, providing much more prominence to the heritage-style "O" logo at the expense of the familiar centurion. The team also unveiled a variation of the heritage logo for its American Hockey League affiliate, the Belleville Senators.
For Claire Ingraham, 21, Camp Woolsey has been a place to learn, meet people, and ultimately pass on her own knowledge. Ingraham, the camp's director, has spent the past six years on staff there, and the decade or so before that as a Girl Guide. Indeed, if you were ever a Pathfinder, Girl Guide, Brownie or Spark in the Ottawa area, there's a good chance you camped at Woolsey, on the banks of the Ottawa river, in West Carleton.
Ottawa's biggest music festival gets underway Thursday afternoon, and organizers say they are mindful of heightened safety concerns even as they try to put on a show. Ottawa Bluesfest, which runs until July 16 at LeBreton Flats, doesn't present the obvious security risk of the Parliament Hill Canada Day celebrations, nor do its concert-goers have the reputation for drug use that has dogged the Escapade electronic music festival.
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".
