A sinkhole that keeps opening near a Glace Bay, N.S., apartment complex has residents worried they're living above an old bootleg coal mine. Jessica Bainbridge lives in one of the buildings. She said the hole first appeared last year and was a metre in diameter. Metcap Living, the owner of the four-building complex on Dominion Street, filled it with loose rocks and refilled it again in January. On Monday, it opened up once more.
A Cape Breton man accused of killing his common-law wife has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric assessment to determine if he was criminally responsible at the time of the death and if he is fit to stand trial. Richard Wayne MacNeil, 40, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Sarabeth Anne Forbes, 33. MacNeil did not appear in Sydney provincial court Friday but was represented by his legal aid lawyer, Darlene MacRury, who asked for the assessment.
When Keely Wadden saw the parking lot outside her Glace Bay, N.S., business filled with water last Thanksgiving Day, she was shocked. Crossfit D10 had only been open a year when about a metre of water invaded the building during a major flood that hit the Sydney area. She ventured inside to check it out. "I don't want to say I swam but that's essentially what it was like," said Wadden. "I was crying and sobbing. The gym represented so much more than a gym.
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".
