WorkSafeBC’s investigation into a fatal crash last week involving a runaway dump truck could take up to a year. But the provincial workplace safety authority has released some information about the accident, saying the articulated rock truck rolled over its operator, later identified on social media as 32-year-old Maple Ridge resident Bobby Vanderhoef, after he parked the vehicle on an incline.
Members of the Tri-Cities Pride Society are calling on the city of Coquitlam to install a rainbow crosswalk and a trans crosswalk at several prominent intersections. Nicola Spurling told council Monday that the move would show the city is diverse and accepting of marginalized people. She noted that the rainbow crosswalks are common in communities around the world and that a trans crosswalk would be a first for British Columbia.
An Abbotsford man accused of failing to disclose his HIV-positive status before having unprotected sexual intercourse with women across Metro Vancouver — including Coquitlam — is facing nine new charges. Brian Carlisle, 47, was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault last month when police took the unusual step of warning the public about his health status. Since then, new complainants have come forward and nine new charges have been laid.
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".
