Justin Wiseman, the man who holed up in a Mount Pearl house for seven hours during a standoff on Tuesday, has not yet been charged. Members of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary's tactical unit barraged into 17 Jersey Avenue, a quiet residential street, after waging a lengthy stalemate with Wiseman. The RNC confirmed for CBC News that Wiseman had been arrested. However, he has not yet been charged. He was picked up on a parole warrant.
An independent investigation's findings into an allegation of sexual assault against a male Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officer will soon be handed to the Newfoundland and Labrador government. The Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT) in Halifax, which investigates serious incidents which arise from the actions of police, were called about the allegation made by a woman to the RNC in summer 2017.
Newfoundland and Labrador's largest theatre will play host to a jury selection for the trial of Trent Butt this month. More than 1,000 potential jurors have been summoned in an effort to find an unbiased and impartial jury to sit on what's expected to be a lengthy and emotionally charged trial. There are no courtrooms at Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court large enough for the selection, so it's moving to the St. John's Arts and Culture Centre.
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".
