E. coli levels at Mactaquac Beach near Fredericton were more than double what they should've been last Friday, forcing a no swimming advisory that lasted the weekend, New Brunswick's acting deputy chief medical officer of health says. Dr. Cristin Muecke said levels of the bacteria between 800/100 mL and 1,000/100 mL were well over the threshold. Anything under 400 is considered safe for swimming, she said.
Although Environment Canada can't confirm a tornado hit the ground Tuesday, a New Brunswick meteorologist says that doesn't mean it didn't happen. Environment Canada issued a tornado watch for Miramichi and the surrounding area on Tuesday night. Earlier in the evening, a tornado warning, a step up from a watch, was issued for Stanley, Doaktown and Blackville. Environment Canada later lifted the watch and warning.
A man who tried to escape Fredericton police after a high-speed chase, crashed his car and was later arrested early Tuesday morning. Fredericton Police Sgt. Scott MacKenzie said the chase happened around 2:30 a.m. on Cliffe Street when a police officer noticed a man driving well over the speed limit. When the officer tried to pull the vehicle over, MacKenzie said the driver wouldn't stop. The chase ended on Main Street, near the Sunset Drive area, where the driver had gotten into an accident.
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".
