And it's not a cliche, either. The agency, which serves Perth, Huron, Grey, Bruce and portions of Oxford County, helps to connect adults with developmental disabilities with their communities. So many families are desperate for the help. They just don't know where to turn – or even where to start. “As a parent...you don't know where any answers are,” said Wally Brown. His daughter is now living independently thanks to the support the family found at Facile.
The massive Canada Flag to be painted in a Stratford park in honour of Canada's 150th birthday will be almost as large as a hockey rink. The grassy painting in Lower Queen's Park will stretch 45 metres by 30 metres. Nancy and Brent Baker, owners of Simplistic Lines, are preparing for a day of painting on Saturday, one week before the big sesquicentennial celebrations in Stratford. Their company, based just outside of Mitchell, paints athletic fields all over the city.
An electrician working on the Sofina Foods plant in Mitchell was taken to hospital with burns after an incident at the facility on Monday afternoon. An addition to the plant is currently underway as Sofina Foods prepares to take over fresh turkey processing from the Maple Leaf plant in Thamesford. “During that construction project a worker received electrical contact and burns to their hands,” said Ministry of Labour spokesperson Janet Deline.
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".
