A dry and hot summer has taken a toll on honey production in the province with one beekeeper estimating that production from his hives alone has plummeted by up to 90 per cent. Andrew Buyers, the president Central Beekeepers Association, has bee hives in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The production at some of his hives has fallen by as much as 90 per cent this year, he said. "I was averaging about 10 pounds per hive of honey," said Buyers.
It was a busy day for the Fredericton Fire Department Wednesday as crews responded to three fires within three hours. At 3:32 p.m., the department received a report of a structure fire on Fisher Avenue in Marysville. When fire crews arrived there was what Platoon Captain Steve Fraser called a "heavy fire" in the rear of the one-story bungalow. "The fire would also advance into the attic space," said Fraser. "The entire roof and attic was destroyed by fire."
The principal of Leo Hayes High School in Fredericton is defending his decision not to include a memorial to a dead classmate of next year's graduating class in their yearbook. Benjamin Dodding was killed in October 2015 after being hit by a car while riding his bicycle. The 14-year-old was not wearing his helmet and police at the time said there was no criminal aspect to the death.
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".
