Kristell Unick lived on the streets in Fredericton for 28 years. She was abused by every single partner she had during that time. But by the time she turned 50, she decided to leave the streets and her abusive partner, and get a job. This is why she was marching Wednesday at the Sisters in Spirit vigil, which honours the missing and murdered indigenous women, girls and men. "Some of these women haven't got the chance to change their lives. But I was," she said.
Family, friends, police officers and first responders paid their respects Wednesday to Frank Deschênes, described by the highest-ranking person on the force as the "consummate Mountie." "One thing is certain, Frank did not die in vain," Daniel Dubeau, the acting commissioner of the RCMP, said at the funeral in Moncton for Deschênes, 35, who died trying to help stranded motorists near Memramcook. Deschênes "absolutely loved his job, and it showed every time he put on his uniform," friend Sgt.
The Energy East Pipeline project might've run into "financial realities" that could diminish its chances of ever being built, New Brunswick's trade minister says. "TransCanada is looking if this is viable for them. They have to have a business model that is viable for them," said Roger Melanson. Melanson said the pipeline, which would carry 1.1. million barrels of crude oil a day from Alberta to Saint John, would be worth more than $850 million in tax revenue for New Brunswick.
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".
