LITTLE CURRENT—Ploughing is embedded in Denis Seguin’s DNA, just about literally, as the one-time dairy farmer turned EMS worker’s father has been competing at the regional, national and international level in the antique category for decades. Now the son is taking over the father, scoring enough points at a regional ploughing competition to advance to the International Ploughing match this week in Walton, Ontario. “I was a dairy farmer before I became a paramedic,” said Mr. Seguin.
TEHKUMMAH—The initial estimate of the tax increase facing this year’s Tehkummah budget deliberations set the town clerk treasurer back in her chair when she first saw the number. For any municipal official or politician, the prospect of a near-63 percent increase in the municipal budget is enough to engender heart palpitations, if not a more serious reaction. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Clerk Treasurer Karen Gerard, “I really couldn’t.
NIAGARA FALLS—Manitoulin’s Kevin Rose has been appointed president of the Economic Developers Association of Canada (EDAC), Canada’s national organization of economic developers. Mr. Rose, the owner-operator of Little Current’s Harbour Vue Marina, is a longtime Island economic development professional and a passionate spokesperson for the field. He was the first Indigenous person to serve as vice-president of the EDAC and will now be the first First Nations person to head that organization.
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".
