No sooner was Elizabeth Wettlaufer sentenced for her crimes than Ontario moved to set up an inquiry into the former nurse’s eight murders at two Southwestern Ontario nursing homes. Demands for a public inquiry had grown since the start of June, when Wettlaufer pleaded guilty to murdering eight long-term care home residents with insulin injections, and trying to kill four others. Early reaction, from groups pushing for a wider probe, was cautiously optimistic.
Josh Field gave the gift of life six times over. That’s knowledge his mother Kathryn Field has cherished through her grief journey, following her 17-year-old son’s tragic death in a distracted driving crash in 2009. Field, who spoke at the Woodstock Organ and Tissue Donation Fun Walk Saturday, said she takes comfort in knowing people’s lives were saved by the donation of his heart, lungs, liver, pancreas and both kidneys. “It helped us with our grief,” she said.
Their adoration of the wiener dog has brought them affection, friendship and even, sometimes, true love. Volunteers from Tiny Paws Dog Rescue transported both their foster and forever dogs to Embro to take part in Wienerfest Home Country Festival, a fundraiser for the organization that rescues all breeds under 20 pounds. Five-year-old Arthur, one of 16 dachshunds who stayed together in a giant exercise pen without incident in a Woodstock hotel, was born without eyes.
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".
