For two nights last week, Sebastian Benuen couldn't sleep — kept awake by the anticipation of a report he hoped would answer questions about his grandson's case. "There was hurt inside of us. Very devastating news. Frustrated," Benuen told CBC News Monday. Sad, Benuen said, but not surprising — leaving an unanswered question about how key evidence in an infant's murder case was lost. "I think that's probably the most important issue — what was going on during the autopsy?" Benuen said.
A report into the state of Newfoundland and Labrador's chief medical examiner's office is set to be made public this afternoon. Completed by Nova Scotia's Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Matthew Bowes, the report is expected to outline infrastructure, resources, policies and procedures, and challenges at the office. Last November, Bowes told reporters his initial reaction to the office is that it's understaffed, with just three staff members. For comparison, the office in Halifax has 24 employees.
Newfoundland and Labrador is known for many things — rugged coast lines, glacial fjords, colourful houses and much more. But you hardly hear talk of beaches. Maybe it's about time we add it to the list. If you're looking to be a tourist at home, or if you want to visit Canada's most easterly province, here are some beaches you can check out. Often considered the best beach the province has to offer, Lumsden is home to long stretches of white sand.
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".
