The moment Greg regained custody of his 16-year-old daughter last summer, he immediately asked a social worker: "Where is she?" That's when he learned she was missing — again — from the Nova Scotia group home where she'd been living. No one had seen her for weeks. "My heart just dropped," says Greg, whose real name is not being published to protect his daughter's identity. "It's like winning a million bucks and you put it in your hand and the wind just blew it away."
The Crown is recommending probation for six teenage males from Nova Scotia who collected and shared intimate images of their female classmates like "bartering chips or baseball cards." The case is one of the largest in Canada involving youth under a relatively new law designed to combat the non-consensual sharing of intimate images. All six males have admitted to distributing nude photos of at least 20 girls between the ages of 13 and 17 without their consent through an online Dropbox account.
The Nova Scotia mother of a terminally ill boy is taking her fight with the Department of Community Services to court after the government kicked her off social assistance and ordered her to repay more than $31,000. The department notified Samantha Monaghan of its decision last October, saying she breached the rules by a "failure to provide information, misrepresentation and nondisclosure of facts," according to documents filed in an appeal of the decision.
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".
