The Nova Scotia government is going to spend more this March on an end-of-fiscal-year spending spree than it has for the last four years combined: Nearly $245 million. Premier Stephen McNeil called it "a real privilege" for his government to find itself with "a substantial size of one-time revenue" to invest, the result of recalculated offshore royalty revenues dating back to 1999.
Elizabeth Smith-McCrossin said she watched the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership convention on Saturday with keen interest — and plenty of empathy for the candidates and their teams. "Felt bad for them, that was my gut reaction," said the woman who would like to lead the PC Party in Nova Scotia come fall. "It certainly didn't seem to go smoothly, and I'm sure there was some frustration by everyone involved." Doug Ford won the Ontario race by a tiny margin over three competitors.
When his partner contracted tubercular meningitis and became a paraplegic in January 2006, Angus Campbell shouldered his new responsibilities as a caregiver, along with the added costs associated with caring for Paul Boulais. Those costs for uninsured medical goods and services "wiped out our life savings," said Campbell.
@colingowton@JohnPrineMusic@JoeJacksonMusic He was fabulous in Halifax last year. 2 1/2 solid hours. Played every son I wanted to hear. Left with a huge smile on my face and a full heart. Hope you have a similar experience.
@joescanlan949@KaylaHounsell Personally I don't think the line is fine at all. There's working hard to get someone else's side of the story for the sake of balance and fairness - and there's harassment. I don't see one equalling the other unless a reporter is not being professional.
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".
