The second-degree murder trial of a Kingsclear man began Tuesday with the Crown describing how victim Bobby Martin Jr. was lured to a trailer outside Fredericton as part of a robbery plan. Wearing a dark grey suit jacket and black-rimmed glasses and sporting a goatee, Evan James Polchies, 31, sat in the prisoner's box, accused of firing the fatal gunshot wounds on Jan. 26, 2017.
For the second time this year, the Canada Revenue Agency has emptied the bank account of a grieving mother. A government error means Janice Taylor owes more than $3,000 in overpayments by Employment and Social Development Canada. It was about a year after the death of Taylor's infant daughter, Aspen, when the CRA first drained her account, and it happened again on Friday. "That was my rent money, that was my light bill money, that was my grocery money and my Christmas money.
Caleb Grove built an eight-by-12 foot house - a micro home - in six months, for $10,000. But it's not to showcase his building skills. It's to shine a light on his scalable, and cheap, power set-up. Powered by solar, 12 volt batteries store enough power to run lights, a laptop, and a fan in the home. Grove has installed 40 similar systems on a small island in Africa called Mbissa. The first place to get electric light was a health clinic. Grove says it was greeted with a hushed awe.
"This was not self-defense. This was not a robbery. This was an ambush. It was an ambush of someone that Evan Polchies hated. Evan Polchies was not scared of the deceased. He deliberately got his weapon ready and he waited to ambush him. And ambush him he did."
Blunston reminds the jury that Martin was shot in the side of the leg, which would have been impossible if he was advancing on Polchies. She points out that blood was only detected right on the floor by the door, and no where else.
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".
