Easter Seals ambassador Cameron Gordon was clapped in to the Rotary meeting Monday morning that wrapped up this year's fundraising campaign, and there was a lot to celebrate. The campaign raised $153 500 this year, to help organizations that support children with disabilities. Gordon travelled to 60 schools in three days, along with many events, to help raise the money, which is a big increase over last year's total of $105 000.
One P.E.I. home childcare operator said recent changes to regulations surrounding her business are too tough. The new Early Learning and Child Care Act came into effect on Jan. 1 2017, after being passed in 2010. Part of the new regulations included changes to how many infants, defined as children under 22 months, an unlicensed operator is allowed. It used to be two, even in a mixed-age setting, now only one infant is allowedâ€” that includes the operators own children.
The Home and School Associations for the two schools in Stratford, P.E.I., are speaking out because they say there has been no information on when the new infrastructure promised in the spring will come to be. Last spring, final decisions in the school review process were made, with one being that there would be some kind of infrastructure to relieve congestion in the two schools. But parents at the schools say overcrowding isn't going anywhere and that a plan is needed.
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".
