The court case for Toronto police officer Michael Theriault and his brother Chirstian, accused in the beating of Black teenager Dafonte Miller, has been put over until the fall. After a brief discussion in an Oshawa courtroom on Aug. 10, the case was moved to a Sept. 7 court date to allow lawyers to review further disclosure. The details of the court case are currently protected under a publication ban.
After some speculation, the Oshawa Generals have signed Swizterland’s Nico Gross to play for the team this season. Earlier this month, following a tweet from Gross’s Swedish club that Gross would be playing in Oshawa this season, fans grabbed at the news, excited that the star defensemen with stints at the World Junior Hockey Championships and the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament would be coming to Oshawa this year.
The fate of land potentially slated to be the home of a future GO station will not be decided until next year. The proposed Thornton Corner’s GO station on lands west of Thornton Road South along the future extension of Consumers Drive is currently owned by Halloway Developments. When the developer’s proposal to build on the land was turned down by the City of Oshawa, it appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board to force some movement on the site.
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".
