The death of a 22-year-old man from Pincourt, Que., just west of Montreal, is bringing to light the risks posed by a new synthetic opioid on the illegal market. Nicholas Vietri died last February after consuming U-47700, a dangerous designer drug known as "pink" or "pinky" on the street that he had ordered online. Vietri was found face down in his bed in the house where he lived with his father. Two months earlier, he'd been found unconscious after using the same drug, but survived.
The disciplinary council of Quebec's College of Physicians has suspended a surgeon from a West Island hospital for not dictating her surgical notes in the 24 hours following her surgeries. The council issues a two-month suspension to Dr. Sharon Dalrymple, who's been a surgeon at the Lakeshore General Hospital for 21 years.
The family of a former federal cabinet minister may get some answers on Wednesday about what caused the 2016 plane crash in Quebec's Magdalen Islands that killed Jean Lapierre and four relatives. The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) will release the findings of its investigation into the March 29, 2016 crash in Montreal. CBC News will livestream the conference here at 10 a.m. ET.
Get outta the way....The big plows are out... barrelling down Grand Blvd. in #NDG. The City of Montreal is asking ppl to use public transit and not drive. Less traffic on the roads helps the snow removal effort. https://t.co/EhoBDVTsoM
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".
