Saint John common council released its 2018 Draft Operating Budget Friday, and the association representing local firefighters says planned cuts to public safety services will likely mean one of the municipality's seven fire stations will have to close. "This is a very hard day for us as firefighters," said Peter Alexander, president of the Saint John Firefighters Association. "As strong characters, even us can get disheartened."
Despite sending travellers soaring through the air, the Saint John Airport's most recent challenges have come from underground. For more than two weeks, the airport in the northeastern end of Saint John has had unacceptable levels of turbidity, or cloudiness, in the water pumping through its pipes. "It means, for us, a lot of extra work for the technicians," said Brian Wiggins, director of operations and maintenance for the building. "Obviously, we prefer not to have a boil water order in place."
An Armed Forces video shows the recent harrowing rescue of two people from a fishing boat taking on water in rough waters west of the Magdalen Islands. At first, the video posted by Joint Task Force Atlantic shows the two people aboard the vessel as waves pound the sides and appear to almost knock it over. Cutting to an inflatable raft, the camera then captures the pair jumping from the fishing boat, trying to land without falling into the water.
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".
