A crowd of more than 200 filled the Cambrian College student centre with chants of "West is best" after Jamie West won the NDP nomination on June 26. The Sudbury District and Labour Council president beat out fellow candidate Beth Mairs on the second ballot, after Carol Mulligan was dropped from the running after the first ballot. "I want to thank everyone who supported me throughout this campaign," said Mulligan after it was announced that she had been dropped out of the running.
The time is now to stop sugarcoating what is a serious situation at the Sudbury Theatre Centre. That was the message from Gerry Lougheed Jr., who was one of roughly 20 people in attendance at the Friends of STC meeting held on June 27. During the meeting it was revealed that the theatre is approximately $400,000 in debt, due to a string of losses over the past three seasons amounting to approximately $250,000 and a mortgage loan from Nickel Basin in the amount of $150,000.
Dr. Denis Roy gave his final report as CEO of Health Sciences North at the hospital's annual general meeting on June 15. Roy is retiring from his position and will be replaced by Laurentian University president Dominic Giroux. Roy spent a little more than seven years as the head of HSN. In that time, he was not only responsible for re-christening the hospital as Health Sciences North, but also for converting Northern Ontario's biggest health care facility as a research and teaching hospital.
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".
