NORFOLK General Hospital Foundation has launched its 2017 Christmas Appeal to the community. In a letter authored by Dr. Nancy Gabel, Chief of Medical Staff, and mailed out to residents this week, the hospital is asking for a holiday gift to help fund the purchase of a substantial list of new equipment. The equipment needs include two Electrocardiogram (ECG) machines, a portable Bronchoscope, a Glidescope, four crash carts and a syringe infusion pump.
JOHN Wells has again expressed his frustration with county council’s lack of power to help residents with problems that belong to the provincial and federal governments. County council is a “shit shield,” catching the flak for decisions made by senior levels of government, the veteran Port Dover councillor told a committee meeting last Tuesday. Coun. Wells said he had recently read that the Ontario government is not concerned about odour from marijuana grow operations.
DRENISE Cowlard of Port Dover is the co-ordinator for this year’s collection of items to include in Women’s Shelter gift bags and Holly Coles of The Wellness Post on Main Street, Port Dover is providing the drop-off point for the donations. Forever Fit Exercise Group is also collecting at Silver Lake Market. The tradition of making up these gift bags was started 20 years ago by Pat Grant. Last year 75 bags were assembled by a group of local volunteers.
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".
