A Nova Scotia emergency doctor who sent a patient home after missing a hepatitis diagnosis has been reprimanded for incompetence. "It's simply a sad case where the care was below our standard and the outcome was tragic," said Dr. Gus Grant, registrar and CEO of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia.
Secrecy around abuse investigations in Nova Scotia's nursing homes puts residents at further risk, according to an advocate for the elderly. "The public eye is very important in these places because, you've got to remember, the residents who live there very often can't speak up for themselves," said Jane Meadus, a lawyer with the Toronto-based Advocacy Centre for the Elderly. "We have to do everything we can to make sure that we are protecting them as much as possible."
RCMP are investigating a lobster pound fire in Digby County as arson. RCMP say the blaze on Little Paradise Road in St. Bernard was reported at 4:45 a.m. RCMP media relations officer Cpl. Jennifer Clarke said it "is being investigated as suspicious in nature." It's not clear if any lobster were destroyed. Firefighters from a half dozen departments responded and returned several times to extinguish stubborn hot spots, according to St. Bernard volunteer fire Chief Daniel Gaudet.
In the time it took me to put a tank of gas in my car last night, my hands went numb and I was soaked through to the skin by the near-freezing rain. Thanks to the @nspowerinc crews who worked through the night to get my power back on. I can't imagine.
@nspowerinc Your outage map shows blackouts in Halifax's North End, Burnside, Bedford, Lower Sackville, Portobello, Spryfield to Ketch Harbour etc etc etc. blaming "Bad Conditions"... What is going on? Do I smell salty fog?
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
