The man charged with first-degree murder in the death of 58-year-old Susie Butlin at a home near Tatamagouche, N.S., remained in a hospital bed Thursday as his case was brought before Nova Scotia provincial court in Truro. Ernie (Junior) Ross Duggan, 49, has been in hospital since he was shot by police early Monday morning at a cemetery several hours after Butlin's body was discovered in a home on Clarks Road in Bayhead. Duggan is also charged with attempted murder for allegedly firing at police.
Federal Express used to advertise its services with the slogan: "When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight." Chelsea McKendrick took FedEx at its word when she ordered an overnight shipment of horse semen for her mare. Now, the Nova Scotia woman has won a judgment against the courier company for $740, the cost of one sperm treatment for her horse. In May 2016, McKendrick ordered horse semen from a farm in British Columbia.
The 17-year-old accused of killing Daniel Handrahan in Stewiacke, N.S., last week is heading home. A youth court judge decided to release the teen, whose identity is protected by a publication ban because of his age, following a lengthy hearing. There's also a ban on the evidence and arguments presented at the hearing, which was called because the Crown is opposed to the boy's release. However, Judge Marc Chisholm said he was satisfied there was a release plan that would work.
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".
