The public reception that welcomed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Kenora on Friday, July 28 was quite a spectacle. The cheers that greeted the prime minister’s arrival on Harbourfront following a boat tour on the Lake of the Woods was as warm as the hot summer day of his visit. Escorted by Kenora MP Bob Nault and dressed causally in a t-shirt and jeans appropriate for a day at the lake, the public response to the prime minister was enthusiastic to say the least.
The ‘Endless Summer’ of 2017 enters the mid-point as glorious month of July glides into August. The ‘dog days’ are upon us with all the special events of high summer in Kenora about to unfold over the coming weeks. The 2017 Canada Summer Games is up first on the calendar with the rowing events scheduled for Rabbit Lake over five days from Saturday, July 29 to August 4. Hosted by the Kenora Rowing Club, planning for the national competition has been underway for nearly two years.
Red Lake pilot Pete McLeod flew to his second consecutive second place podium finish in the fifth race of the 2017 Red Bull Air Race championship series at Kazan, Russia on Sunday, July 23. As a result, McLeod is now in fourth place overall in the championship standings with 38 points, just two point shy of series front runner Kirby Chambliss of the USA.
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".
