The Resurgo Place Museum in Moncton is using new technology to search for old graves — without digging anyone up. Headstones in the graveyard between the museum and the Free Meeting House, the first and oldest public building in the city, date back to 1816. Lawrence Campbell, the museum's co-ordinator of heritage and culture, said the Free Meeting House was also used as an omni-denominational place of worship for early settlers.
A Moncton doctor who snooped in the medical files of 141 women and girls is to appear in court next month to get a trial date on a charge of impaired driving. Dr. Fernando Rojas was charged with driving while impaired in Moncton on Sept. 30, 2016. A trial date was to be set Monday, but the Crown and defence were not available. Rojas did not appear either. Rojas is already scheduled to go on trial in September on drunk-driving charges from April 14, 2016.
A man in prison for killing two Moncton police officers more than 40 years ago had his request for full parole denied again. Richard Joseph Bergeron — who changed his name from Richard Ambrose — was denied parole on Feb. 1. But a ruling dated June 29, shows the Appeal Division upheld the decision to deny parole. Bergeron and James Hutchison were sentenced to hang for the 1974 shootings of Const. Michael O'Leary and Cpl. Aurele Bourgeois in 1974.
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".
