The victims of Tuesday's deadly ammonia leak in B.C. have been identified. The three men died after being exposed to the deadly fumes at a municipal ice rink. There have been leaks here in the Ottawa Gatineau area as recently as last year, fortunately with no injuries. According to the city of Ottawa, ammonia is used at all city arenas. But not nearly to the same extent it used to be in older arenas. Still, the concern is real one leak last year in Gatineau resulted in an evacuation.
Ottawa Police now confirm they located a handgun following an investigation Thursday morning that kept Glebe Collegiate High School in lockdown mode. Police also told CTV reporter Joanne Schnurr one male teenager was arrested after a bullet was found on the grounds of the school. Glebe was placed into secure school mode Thursday morning after police received a call about a possible weapon. Students are now free to leave classrooms but are told to remain in the school.
Ottawa firefighters are part of study that shows toxins in smoke are being absorbed through their skin. That research could change how firefighters prepare themselves before a fire and how theyrespond after a fire. We know there is a clear link between firefighting and the increased risk of cancer. It's believed that link was the result of the toxins firefighters were breathing in. Now, evidence suggests it's also what toxins they are taking in through their skin.
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".
