Wiarton students will be hearing the call of the wild next winter, as they are enticed to go outside through a new initiative called “Phenomenal phenology.” The title, referring to phenology – the study of cyclic and seasonal natural phenomena, especially in relation to climate and its effects on plant and animal life – was used for a project at Peninsula Shores District School which recently received a 2017/18 “Go Wild Schools Grant” from WWF Canada (World Wildlife Fund).
“Toughen up!” “Don’t be so sensitive.” “I can’t believe that bothers you!” If you have a high level of sensitivity to physical and/or emotional stimuli, you may have hypersensitivity along with attention deficit disorder. After I told my younger sister, Melissa, about my attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) diagnosis, we reminisced about our childhood. “If there were family arguments, we would think it was something little, but, for you, it was huge,” said Melissa.
A who's who of about 30 Grey-Bruce charitable organizations and community stakeholders with an interest in homelessness attended a forum hosted by the Salvation Army in Wiarton, March 1. "People were thrilled to have the opportunity to come together," Mary Millar, Captain of the Salvation Army said in an interview. Miller said the participants were unanimous in their agreement that solving the issue of homelessness in the area would take a collaborative approach.
Here's hoping for a fantastic, uplifting and successful (in however you may define it!) new year for all those struggling with being "different." May you find inner peace and abundant joy! (yes; I am early; not a common thing for me) #livingwithadhd#ADHDAccordingtoZoe
Stuck for an excellent Christmas/Hanukkah/Solstice/birthday gift for that special someone? Stop procrastinating! (I know it's hard to do) and order a copy of ADHD According to Zoe. Here's some of what I cover: https://t.co/vV7vurLgw6 … #ADHDAccordingtoZoe
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".
