Police are warning the public to take extra care on and around Richmond’s roads after the city’s fourth pedestrian fatality of the year. Shortly before 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 12, Richmond RCMP responded to the 11000 block of Bridgeport Road, between No. 5 and Shell roads, for a serious collision between a pedestrian and a vehicle. The pedestrian, a 54-year old woman from Richmond, was struck by a gray 2013 Acura SUV, driven by a 59-year old male from Surrey.
Former Celtic and Rangers defender Rhonda Jones enjoyed a glittering career with 117 international caps. But off the pitch, she was fighting a battle in GP surgeries and psychiatrists’ offices wiping away tears as she tried to get help for her little sister. Gemma Jones, 29, suffered from severe mental health problems and died suddenly in September, leaving behind two young children.
Saturday, Nov. 18: 8 a.m. to noon: Ironwood Plaza: RCMP Toy Drive: The Richmond RCMP Toy Drive and Pancake Breakfast returns to Ironwood Plaza for the third year in a row. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever, but the main idea remains the same. Stop by Ironwood between 8 a.m. and noon, donate a new toy or book to the Richmond Christmas Fund (or make a minimum $5 cash donation), and get treated to a free pancake breakfast.
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".
