An eastern Newfoundland woman, who says marijuana use almost destroyed her, fears legalization of the drug will harm many more people. "It makes me scared, angry and disappointed. I turned into an addict from weed and they're going to turn more people into me. Very sick people," she said. "This is my problem with legalizing weed â€” they are going to turn more people into addicts." CBC News has agreed to protect her identity and call her Jane Doe.
A Newfoundland and Labrador doctor who is being sued by the parents of a stillborn baby has filed his own lawsuit against the Central Regional Health Authority claiming it damaged his reputation, and deprived him of income by terminating his contract in 2015. Dr. Ikechukwu (Steven) Madu was working out of the James Paton Memorial Hospital in Gander at the time. The health authority's action followed complaints by patients to the province's college of physicians and surgeons.
A central Newfoundland couple is suing a physician, and the health authority that employed him, claiming negligence led to their daughter's death. Her parents, Jessica Lambert and Travis Troake, of New World Island, believe the baby would not have died if obstetrician Ikechukwu (Steven) Madu had given proper medical care. Lambert and Troake's complaint is one of three that triggered a disciplinary hearing of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador.
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".
