Diabetes Canada is closing a popular camp on P.E.I. for Island children with Type 1 diabetes, along with their summer camp in neighbouring New Brunswick. Camp Red Fox in Canoe Cove, P.E.I., helped children ages seven to 14 learn how to manage their disease. They also made crafts, played games and built campfires. Camp Dia-Best at Green Hill Lake, N.B, will also close after 50 years.
P.E.I. 's Department of Justice and Public Safety held a briefing outlining more details on cannabis legislation in Prince Edward Island, in advance of the federal government's cannabis legalization this summer. The province announced in December that the legal age of use and purchase will be 19 and cannabis will be sold through the Liquor Control Commission at retail outlets separate from their current stores.
One Island family is expressing disappointment that a P.E.I. summer camp for children with Type 1 diabetes won't reopen this summer. Diabetes Canada announced last week it will not run Camp Red Fox in P.E.I. or Camp Dia-Best in New Brunswick. The region's only camps will now be held in neighbouring Nova Scotia. "It was devastating," said Ashlen Smith of South Rustico, P.E.I., whose daughter Kyrah has attended Camp Red Fox for the last four years. "It's heartbreaking news."
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".
