Pierre DesRuisseaux served as Parliamentary Poet Laureate from 2009 to 2011. He died in 2016. His 2013 book of French poetry, Tranche de vie, includes numerous examples of uncredited borrowing from other writers, according to Ira Lightman, a British poet who has outed several high-profile plagiarists. Lightman alerted DesRuisseaux's Montreal-based publisher last year, but he only went public with his investigation in a recent Guardian profile.
Judge Bernd Zabel expressed "profound regret" over the incident when he appeared before an Ontario Judicial Council disciplinary panel last month. "It was ill-considered, ill-thought out and I’ve obviously learned a lot from that," he told the panel. Zabel, who has worked as a judge in Ontario for almost three decades, wore the hat into the Hamilton courtroom the day after the US presidential election. He said he had bought several MAGA hats as historical memorabilia, not as a Trump supporter.
It may not be a high-stakes diamond heist, but thieves in Hamilton, Ont., have pulled off a remarkable crime, driving away with over $15,000 worth of goods from a trucking business in Hamilton over the weekend. Their spoils: a semi trailer full of shampoo and mouthwash. The Hamilton Police Service says the theft occurred at a commercial trucking business between midnight and 6 a.m. on Aug. 16.
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".
