A filmmaker who grew up in Watford had a big night when the awards were announced at the Montreal International Documentary Festival. Films by GreenGround Productions, a company Watford-raised Andreas Mendritzki formed in 2008 with fellow Concordia University graduates Nguyen-Ahn Nguyen and Aonan Yang, won two awards and a special mention from the festival jury.
Jessica Platt was at the big rink in her hometown Saturday morning, a week after posting a message on Instagram that made the Toronto Furies forward the first openly transgender athlete to play in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. The Furies were in Sarnia to play a regular season afternoon game against Montreal as part of Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada at the Progressive Auto Sales Arena. “It’s nice to just have everything out in the open, and I can just focus on playing hockey,” Platt said.
Carolyne Prevost and a few of her Toronto Furies teammates checked names Saturday morning on the Clarkson Cup while it was on display at Sarnia’s Progressive Auto Sales Arena. Prevost, a Sarnia native, was with the Toronto team in her hometown for an afternoon league game against Montreal at the city’s big rink as part of a Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada event.
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".
