Norman Hache, a Yellowknife man and "the boss" who ran a drug-selling operation connecting Calgary drugs to at least four Northwest Territories communities including Yellowknife, has pleaded guilty to two charges: possessing and conspiring to traffic cocaine, and trying to arrange for a man to be assaulted. Hache entered the pleas in Northwest Territories Supreme Court on Thursday. Crown and defence counsels agreed on a five-year term of incarceration minus credit time he's already served.
A man in Yellowknife, who was convicted for stabbing a woman's pet pug to death in 2011, has been sentenced to 11 months in jail for being unlawfully in a dwelling house, breaking and entering with intent and for uttering a threat to cause death or harm. Lloyd Thrasher, 29, was arrested after breaking into a woman's home in Yellowknife last December. RCMP say he resisted arrest and hurled threats as he was being put in RCMP cells.
A student in Norman Wells, N.W.T., is the first to present a project on the history of LGBTQ rights in Canada for a national youth recognition program. In April, McKenzy Flowers, 12, presented her project — full of information about the rainbow flag, pride parade and past social movements in Canada — at Mackenzie Mountain School's heritage fair. Not long after, someone from the program Young Citizens let her know her project was moving to the national level.
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".
