In order to answer the question about how much black shale is safe to be ingested, Water Wells First is teaming up with the University of Windsor to study the issue. Kevin Jakubec, spokesperson for WWF, made the announcement from the home of Angie and Jim Leveille, after they received an e-mail from the Ministry of Environment explaining they would not be getting any water from the wind farm company while their complaint was investigated.
The issue of sex trafficking is getting more attention thanks to the first day dedicated to bringing awareness to the issue across Ontario. Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP Laurie Scott hosted almost 200 members of the public at an open forum to mark the inaugural Human Trafficking Awareness Day in Ontario on Feb. 22. Now Scott is teaming up with Chatham-Kent-Essex MPP Rick Nicholls to bring an awareness forum to Chatham March 15 at 7 p.m. at the John Bradley Convention Centre.
Calls by area MPPs and the members of Water Wells First (WWF) for a health hazard investigation into the effects of drinking water with black shale in it seems to be falling on deaf ears. WWF spokesperson Kevin Jakubec, however, said now that the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change has acknowledged their testing results that show the sediment is full of black shale, known to contain heavy metals, they are hopeful they are one step closer to a health hazard investigation.
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".
