Hamilton’s police chief is continuing to raise concerns about the impending legalization of recreational marijuana. Eric Girt says when it comes to the new rules, the federal government will be faced with a challenge in making it clear what Canadians can and cannot do. “The government’s going to have to be clear on what the legislation actually is, what the enforcement provisions are,” he told AM900 CHML on Monday.
Toronto police say a 25-year-old Hamilton man has been charged after allegedly threatening to distribute a woman’s nude photos. Police launched an investigation earlier this month. They allege that in the course of an online relationship between the victim and a man she knew as Tim James, the suspect asked for intimate images, which she provided. Investigators say these requests “escalated into demands” for the woman to perform sex acts on webcam.
Toronto police say charges have been laid against a man and a teenager after a 15-year-old girl was allegedly held against her will and forced into sex work. Police say the victim was contacted by a girl, then 16, via Facebook in May of last year, and convinced her to come to Toronto “so they could hang out.”After she arrived, she was introduced to a then-25-year-old man who told her she was going to work for him as a prostitute.
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".
