A plane that crashed in Lake St. John has finally been recovered. Crews spent the better part of Monday hooking the wreckage up to large balloons to float the plane to the surface. Once there, it was towed back to shore and hooked up to a large crane. “It didn't look as bad in the water as it does now,” says Dylan McKee, one of people who rescued the occupants of the plane. “It's just upsetting to see.
Colleen McKee was sitting in her backyard with a friend when she heard something that didn't sound right. What she saw was a plane experiencing engine trouble as it headed straight towards Orillia Lake St. John Airport. “We were hearing the plane overhead and then one of the engines stopped. When it stopped I thought, ‘that is not good.’”Seconds later she heard a crash. She ran to the waterfront and saw the plane upside down in the lake.
As police continue to search for those responsible for a deadly shooting in Orillia, the friends and family of the victim are remembering him as someone who would do anything for anyone. On Sunday morning, Joe Simonds was found suffering from gunshot wounds at a home on Franklin Street. Simonds was rushed to hospital, but was later pronounced dead. “He was just an amazing guy. He’d take the shirt of his back for anybody,” says Stephanie Powell, a close friend.
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".
