Witteveen, the owner of Strodes BBQ and Deli on Fairview Drive, and Davis, of Brantford law firm Waterous Holden Amy Hitchon, were among eight people who took part in the Brant United Way's inaugural Firefighter for A Day experience with the Brantford fire department. "Freakin' awesome," Witteveen said of the event, which also took participants to a training facility on Six Nations.
Get ready to grow your mo. That's the word from the Brantford Millennial Network Group as it prepares for its second annual campaign in support of Movember. "We've expanded the effort to include a lot more events and two other cities - Hamilton and London," said Ben Strasser, co-founder of the Millennial Network Group. "We've got a lot of different events planned and hope to raise about $15,000 among the three cities and all of the events."
They're both veterinarians from Japan, who are here to learn more about the specialized cat health protocols being used by Dr. Kelly St. Denis at her Charing Cross Cat Clinic. The protocols cover everything to encourage healthy cats from vaccinations to nutrition and from nail care to protection from parasites. Developed by Canada's six local board certified feline veterinary specialists, Cat Healthy certification requires veterinarians to spend at least six years of full-time practice with cats.
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".
