Rather than plow under the leftovers from this year's strawberry crop, Brian Greene welcomed about 20 volunteers to the Cape Breton farm where he works for a harvest effort to benefit those who could use it most. Quinn's Farm in Millville is donating all the berries left in its fields to the Glace Bay Food Bank, whose staff and volunteers headed out Tuesday to pick close to 300 pounds. "For us, it's a no-brainer," said Greene.
Ever get a hankering to tickle the ivories while strolling downtown? In Sydney, N.S., now you can do just that. Valerie MacMillan donated her upright piano to a busy corner outside of Doktor Luke's coffee shop on Prince Street. The piano was given to her family in 1990. Built 92 years before that, it's an antique. MacMillan considered getting a new model recently and her friend told her about outdoor pianos.
The name of a short, nondescript street in Whitney Pier will soon reflect the historic significance of the communities that border it. Cape Breton Regional Council has unanimously approved a request to change Middle Street's name to Galicia Street. Located between the Ukrainian and Polish communities, the new street name connects their shared past. "It's a name and territory that binds both communities together — very appropriate," said Rev.
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".
