British Columbia’s former liquefied natural gas advocate is seeking $5-million in a defamation lawsuit from Premier John Horgan, Jobs Minister Bruce Ralston and a federal NDP MP over false allegations that he completed little work before he was recently fired after four years on the job. The lawyer for Gordon Wilson, a former BC Liberal leader whose career in provincial politics also saw him serve as an NDP finance minister, submitted a claim in the defamation suit to B.C.
Filming has resumed on the set of the feature film Deadpool 2, only two days after a stuntperson was killed in a horrific crash and the union representing actors in the province is expressing concern that it might be too soon. On Wednesday, cast and crew were filming underneath the Granville Street Bridge in downtown Vancouver amidst a staged fiery tangle of wreckage, toppled cars and a truck as scores of bystanders looked on.
The BC Coroners Service has identified SJ Harris as the stunt actor who died Monday after crashing her motorcycle into the base of a skyscraper, in a sequence being shot for the new Ryan Reynolds feature film Deadpool 2. It was the first fatal stunt-related death in B.C. since 1996, according to occupational health and safety organization WorkSafeBC, which has launched an investigation into the Monday morning incident in downtown Vancouver. Ms. Harris was a 40-year-old resident of New York City.
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".
