A Celtic concert benefitting the community will hit the stage in Stratford Friday night. The band Mystic Fyre will be performing its Celtic Chaos concert at Revival House starting at 8 p.m. The St. Patrick’s Eve show, featuring lively jigs, reels and Irish ballads, is the latest entry in the Winter Concert Series, a fundraiser for United Way Perth-Huron (UWPH). Event spokesperson Terri Sparling, a UWPH community volunteer, is looking forward to Mystic Fyre lighting up the Brunswick Street venue.
The newly installed crib wall along Lake Victoria near Tom Patterson Island boasts multiple benefits. Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) officials said the 300-foot wooden structure will help reduce the amount of sediment entering the Avon River, lessen riverbank erosion, and provide shelter and food sources for aquatic life.
The Will & Grace star, honoured with the Stratford Festival Legacy Award last year, is returning for a single-show concert later this fall. He’ll be appearing as El Gallo in The Fantasticks in Concert on Oct. 30 at the Avon Theatre. The show will be directed by Richard Ouzounian, who was at the helm of the 1989 version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream starring McCormack as Demetrius. Stratford Festival publicity director Ann Swerdfager said the upcoming reunion is connected to last year’s legacy award.
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".
