Women experiencing intimate violence face myriad hurdles that make it challenging to leave their spouses, something that pregnancy makes even more difficult, an advocacy group said Wednesday. The Canadian Women's Foundation emphasized those difficulties after the stabbing, earlier this week, of a Montreal woman who was eight months pregnant. Raja Ghazi's baby was born Monday via emergency C-section, but died hours later in a Montreal hospital.
A Montreal man has been charged with first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing his pregnant wife, whose baby died after an emergency C-section. The baby was born following the stabbing early Monday morning. The sex of the child has not yet been revealed. The infant was in critical condition for several hours before dying in hospital. Sofiane Ghazi, 37, faces seven other charges, including the attempted murder of his wife, Raja Ghazi, death threats and car theft.
Quebec's anti-radicalization centre says it's going to continue to work toward creating a satellite office in Quebec City, despite the mayor's refusal to provide funding. The Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence already has two full-time staff members dedicated to working on Quebec City cases, and Marian Misdrahi, program manager for the centre, believes the area could be better served with an established office.
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".
