Two former employees of a B.C. company under fire after allegations of animal abuse are speaking out in the wake of an advocacy group’s hidden camera video. Both say they saw only slivers of the behaviour made public in the videos recorded by an undercover agent for Mercy for Animals posing as an employee – but when they saw the whole video, it was sickening. “When I saw that I thought, what the heck. That made me cringe. I didn’t like it,” Gina DiMarco told CTV News on Thursday.
A suspect turned himself in hours after police released disturbing video that shows a West Vancouver cyclist being knocked to the ground and seriously hurt by a pickup truck that speeds away. The victim – luxury realtor Eric Latta – was coming to the end of a three-hour bike ride and was just minutes from home when he was struck on Bellevue Avenue Saturday night.
The sensational sexual assault trial of a former RCMP spokesperson really boils down to a simple case of a woman who was sexually assaulted at work, the Crown counsel in the case told provincial court. The victim was a full-time civilian employee working in the unit headed up by retired Inspector Tim Shields who endured repeated sexual harassment culminating in an incident in a washroom in the former Vancouver RCMP headquarters, said Michelle Booker.
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".
