The spirit of Terry Fox remains strong, even after three and a half decades. On Sunday over the span of two hours, people took part in the 37th annual Terry Fox Run, held at Riverside Park, based outside of the Kiwanis Field House. The weather was picture perfect, clear and sunny if a bit on the warm side, as participants gathered once more to take part in the fundraiser with a global reach.
Pembroke's Rotary Park will be among those benefiting from the generosity of the cyclists who took part in Saturday's Rotary Ride for Kids. The event raised $11,000, with more donations and funds to be counted, a total that thrilled ride coordinator Christine St. Jean. “We had a goal of $10,000, so that is over it,” she said. Half of the funds raised will go towards constructing a new play structure at the park, while the rest goes to The Grind Youth Group.
It has been a busy day for Kanata-Carleton MP Karen McCrimmon. She spent Monday in Renfrew County acting on behalf of Navdeep Bains, the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, making a series of funding announcements for local projects. The funds come from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, part of the federal government's activities to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation.
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".
