A former Nova Scotia music teacher has been acquitted of a sex charge involving a former student that was alleged to have happened in the 1970s. This was one of two sets of charges Brian David Fogelson, 64, faced. He's currently on house arrest after he pleaded guilty last October to a charge of indecent assault involving another student. Fogelson was sentenced to 18 months of house arrest for that charge.
A Nova Scotia woman who says she was raped by members of a British Navy hockey team has launched a civil lawsuit against the government of Great Britain. Papers initiating the lawsuit were filed in Nova Scotia Supreme Court last week. Four British sailors who were in Dartmouth to play in a military hockey tournament were charged with sex offences. The Crown alleged all four assaulted the woman in barracks at Canadian Forces Base Shearwater in Eastern Passage, N.S., in April 2015.
A former doctoral student at Dalhousie University has won a judgment worth nearly $50,000 against the university for breach of contract. Tara Tapics, 42, is now a doctoral student at Sherbrooke University in Quebec. But in 2010, she was part of a research project studying leatherback turtles at Dalhousie that she hoped would lead to a PhD with the Halifax-based university.
Brooker says as part of his search he was unable to come up with some documents. Faced resistance from some people who wanted no part of this investigation, which one person described as a “witch hunt”. #cbcns
Rhyno told Brooker that as soon as he learned jail time was a possibility, he notified @NSBS. Society has to protect lawyer’s clients when there’s a possibility they’ll be out of commission because of something like jail time. #cbcns
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".
