Family and friends of Hudson Brooks, a 20-year-old man from Surrey who was shot dead by police, are marking the second anniversary of his death with a mixture of grief and frustration. Police got a 911 call in the early morning hours of July 18, 2015, when Brooks appeared to be in distress as he walked along 152 Street near 18 Avenue. A short while later, Brooks was shot and killed by an RCMP officer. His family has been digging for answers ever since.
RCMP say the unintended victim of yesterday's shooting in the Newton area of Surrey is a 64-year-old woman. Cpl. Scotty Schumann with Surrey RCMP says the woman is in town from Ontario to visit family. "Certainly, it does strike a chord with officers because an innocent person was involved," Schumann said. "At this point, we don't have any suspects, and there are no people in custody."
The Fraser Health Authority has a warning for the tens of thousands of people descending on Surrey this weekend for a major music festival: be careful in the heat. Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Shovita Padhi said staff are always concerned about sun stroke, dehydration and overdoses when temperatures climb into the high 20s and 30s. "The key three things that we ask people are: to stay hydrated, be sun smart and chill out," Padhi said.
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".
