Grade 10 students across the province will sit down later this month to write a new literacy assessment that comes two years later than planned. The Department of Education announced plans for a literacy test in 2015 with the expectation it would be introduced the following year. However, an online test piloted in 2016 was met with technology problems and officials decided to return to old-fashioned pen and paper, which delayed the process. This year's test will not be for any school credit.
By age, 41 years separates Cole Sinclair and Doug Carmody, but they expect a shared interest in medicine will bring them together in the coming weeks. Sinclair, 14, and Carmody, 55, have been paired together as part of an inter-generational mentorship program in Summerside, organized by the community's age-friendly cities committee. "I'm sure friendships are going to develop out of this," said committee coordinator Shirlene O'Brien.
Some think the design is an eyesore, while others say it's a step in the right direction. A proposed apartment building planned for the Stratford waterfront got mixed reviews from residents at a public meeting Wednesday evening. Tim Banks, CEO of the APM group, wants to build a five storey, 79 unit apartment building on land beside the Southport Motel. It is near the town's sewage lagoons, which the town plans to transform into green space.
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".
