The Town of Petrolia has announced a new partnership with Canadian Blood Services, which will help to ensure lifesaving blood products are available to those hospital patients who may be in need. The town has adopted the Petrolia blood donor clinic that is coming on Sept. 25, working to recruit new donors and fill appointments. They are aiming to collect 115 donations at the upcoming clinic.
Petrolia is looking to explore the possibility of expanding and reimagining Victoria Hall. Director of Cultural Services Richard Poore said he’s working on an application to submit to the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund by the end of September. He hopes the town can obtain a grant that could cover up to 75 per cent of a feasibility study, which would look into how Victoria Hall could be renovated and expanded to meet contemporary expectations.
The Petrolia squires are preparing for a new season, welcoming some fresh faces to the bench as well as a new head coach – Craig Prudom. Player and longtime executive member of the Squires, Jeremiah Goodacre, said the Squires are bidding farewell to last year’s head coach Brad Wright, and welcoming back Craig Prudom, who coached the team for several years in the 2000s. “We’re very thankful for the job that Brad Wright did, he coached us for three years and did a great job,” Goodacre said.
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".
