From the banks of the Nashwaak River to the pebbly beaches of Sandy Point Road, New Brunswickers are using a variety of methods to fight slope failure — with varying success. Slope failure, or erosion, happens when topsoil gets worn away because of water, fierce winds and human activity. The process causes irreparable damage to shoreline habitat and threatens homes, roads and beach access. Preventing slope failure is tricky — but not impossible.
Another Saint John-born teacher will make an appearance on the TV game show Jeopardy! Saint John-born Christopher Fennell grew up in Saint John and now teaches at the University of Ottawa. He's the second person from the city to appear on the long-running quiz show after Maryanne Lewell, who in 2013 was the only Canadian to qualify for the Jeopardy! teachers tournament. Fennell, a self-described lifelong "trivia geek," started the application process after a friend passed on a link to the Jeopardy!
Tim Barry, the madman ultra marathoner who spent the weekend running the 150-kilometre Fundy Trek — celebrated at the finish line with a Coors Light and a family-sized bag of BBQ chips.

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".
