Would you know what to do if you saw someone fall through the ice? What about if you fell through? CBC Newfoundland and Labrador teamed up with Rovers Search and Rescue for a demonstration, and staged three scenarios on a pond in Torbay. Paul French, a volunteer with Rover's ice water rescue team, says the first and most important thing to do is to get your breathing under control — and you have about one minute to do it. From there, French estimates you have 10 minutes of "meaningful movement."
Tuesday, 7.59am, Farringdon. And I’m rushing at speed towards The New Normal. I’m late again – nothing new there. But what is new and, dare I say it, strikingly abnormal, is my attendance at a tech event, which would previously have left me cold. HERE/FORTH (an emerging technology advisory) recently launched a global futures community on Slack called ‘The New Normal’ (TNN), which hosts bi-weekly networking events to gather and debate the latest tech and tech industry issues affecting us all.
The man behind the long-running St. John's Teddy Bear Picnic is opening up about his private battle with mental illness - and its stark contrast to his bubbly, public persona. 'I'm the teddy bear man, how can I be sad?' "I guess I realized it many, many years ago," Terry Rielly said in an interview with The St.
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".
