Supporters and relatives of Abdirahman Abdi, who lost vital signs during what witnesses called a violent arrest in 2016, call the distant trial date for the officer charged a failure of the justice system and proof that proposed changes to clear the backlog of cases aren't working. The 12-week trial for Const. Daniel Montsion is scheduled to start in February 2019, nearly three years after Abdi's death.
Despite growing opposition, the Salvation Army says it will not halt its rezoning application to turn a rundown motel into a new $50-million homeless shelter in the heart of Vanier. "This is where our clients are. This is where we are best positioned to do the work we need to do," said Salvation Army spokesperson Glenn Van Gulik. He made his remarks one day after hundreds of residents showed up at a meeting to find out how they can stop the proposed development at 333 Montreal Rd.
Moments Manor uses a GPS bracelet to track the seniors with Alzheimers and dementia who reside in assisted living facilities, but that technology did not seem to be enough to prevent Jean Proulx from wandering out of the building to his death. Despite an extensive search by staff and police, the 80-year-old Ottawa man who suffers from dementia and diabetes was found one kilometre from the St. Joseph Boulevard seniors' home four days after his disappearance.
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".
