It has been a summer of ups and downs for a P.E.I. mother working to establish a new recovery house in honour of her son. Dianne Young and the board of the Lennon Recovery House Association were given the keys to Belcourt Centre in Rustico, P.E.I., in May. "There's huge potential here and it's just been sometimes overwhelming," said Young. "It is a blessing definitely to have this building donated, that being said, we have a lot of work to do." Young's son, Lennon Waterman, took his life in 2013.
This year's dry weather and hot temperatures on P.E.I. have winemakers excited about their crop of grapes and the wine they will make with them. The berries on the plant are small so the yield will be down, but they'll be better quality, said Mike Newman, wine maker at Newman Estate Winery in eastern P.E.I. "A smaller berry means higher sugar concentration and then higher sugar concentration in a grape generally results in to better wine," he said. "So it's a year I'm very excited about."
Construction has just started on a new splash pad in the town of Stratford, P.E.I. and work will begin in the spring on the long-awaited skate park. It's great news for Alex Stokes, 19, who's been lobbying for the skate park for six years. "I originally wrote an email when I was in Grade 7, I'm currently going into my second year of university," said Stokes.
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".
