An Ontario Court judge in Sudbury is puzzled that people continue to roll the dice with highly dangerous drugs that could kill them despite all the publicity surrounding their wrongful use. “Mr. (Denys) Bradley (the federal prosecutor) is right,” said Justice Andrew Buttazzoni, just before sentencing Brian Melanson to a four-month conditional sentence on a fentanyl possession charge. “You would have to be living under a rock not to know about the ravages of fentanyl.
It's a day that will be forever etched in Sharon Neville's mind. It was about 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 20, 1970 when she lost her 52-year-old uncle Vincent Howard as a tornado roared through her Lockerby neighbourhood and then struck Copper Cliff and Lively, claiming a total of six lives. "He lived with us," recalled the former Sharon Durland, who was just five at the time. " He always spoiled me and my sister (Colleen). He was good to us. He made us breakfast. He left that morning. It was a nice morning.
A man who was involved in a fight with a knife in the washroom of the downtown Tim Hortons restaurant in early April has been given the equivalent of just under a one-year jail sentence. Mitch Shawana, whose trial was already underway in connection with the April 5 incident, opted to plead guilty in the Ontario Court of Justice to breach of probation and assault with a weapon.
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".
