WIIKWEMKOONG—Little Current Royal Canadian Legion Branch 177 member Kathleen Eshkibok declared herself ecstatic over the response to the ‘Veteran’s Story’ essay and art contest she initiated as part of her vision to see today’s Anishinaabe youth explore the sacrifices made by their relatives when they stepped up to serve in the Canadian and American forces during both world wars and other conflicts, despite being exempt from such service and paying a cost in their own nationhood to do so.
PROVIDENCE BAY—Blair Sullivan had signed up to join the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Christmas holidays of 1942, but before June 1, 1943 when he was to travel to the recruiting station in Windsor, a draft notice appeared in the mail at his parent’s Madison County, Indiana home informing him he had been drafted by the US Army and was to report for basic training in a field artillery battalion at Camp Roberts, California.
M’CHIGEENG—A stiff gale may have been howling outside, but those attending a morning thanksgiving ceremony with Kenjgewin Teg Elder-in-Residence Roberta Oshkabewisens at the October 24 groundbreaking ceremonies for a $2 million Anishinabek Skills, Innovation and Research Centre were snug and warm in the almost-completed teaching lodge—a traditional birchbark wigwam.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
