A Thompson Rivers University law professor says that privacy acts can be effective tools for lawyers attempting to help innocent individuals ensnared by vigilante groups such as Creep Catchers, which outs suspected pedophiles by posting their video and personal information on the internet. “This is fairly new phenomena,” says Craig Jones, as vigilante groups are springing up across Canada, in the United States and overseas in Australia.
The University of B.C. 's (UBC) building boom is continuing with approximately half a billion dollars worth of infrastructure projects set out in its current 2016-2020 five-year plan. "A lot of the (remaining) projects are dependent upon receiving financing," said John Metras, managing director of UBC's infrastructure development. But two projects with a combined preliminary value of $61 million are slated to go to tender in 2018 and are at UBC's Interior B.C.
Construction has now started on the new $15 million Heavy Mechanical Trades Training facility to replace the existing outgrown facility at the Prince George campus of the College of New Caledonia (CNC). The new facility will provide more opportunities for entrants and apprentices who are following a journeyman path in heavy-duty mechanics, which have been in critical demand over the years as more baby boomers exit the trade, said Frank Rossi, dean of CNC's School of Trades and Technologies.
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".
