Reports of Mt. Scio Savoury going the way of Zest's sweet mustard pickles have been greatly exaggerated. A viral hoax that spread on Facebook over the weekend claimed the popular savoury was being discontinued. But a quick glance at the origin of the website, and a chat with the man who runs Mount Scio Farm, quickly dispelled any notions that you soon won't be able to find the classic Newfoundland staple.
A teenager in the small Northern Peninsula community of Cow Head is dead after being hit by a vehicle on his walk to school Monday morning. Cow Head Deputy Mayor Max King says the 17-year-old Grade 12 student at Long Range Academy was fatally struck by an SUV at around 8:30 a.m. on the town's main street.

A gym full of people showed up for a meet and greet with former NBA star Ron Harper on Saturday in St. John's. The five-time NBA champion, who was a teammate of Michael Jordan on the Chicago Bulls and Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal on the Los Angeles Lakers, was in town for an NBA Campus Pass event at Memorial University. He said he's noticed a real difference in the growth of the sport in Canada since the NBA first came to Toronto and Vancouver in 1995.
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".
