In his first interview with police after being arrested on child sex abuse charges, then-Young Canadians employee Philip Heerema told the detective he felt like a "monster" but had meant no harm to the teens he's accused of targeting. "I never felt like I was trying to manipulate them," court heard Heerema tell child abuse unit Det. Paul Ralstin on the recorded interview, which continued to be played on Day 2 of the accused's trial.
LYNDHURST – Administrators have volunteered to forego merit pay and some reimbursements as the Lyndhurst School District contends with a $1.1 million deficit. The Board of Education approved a corrective action plan to address the deficit at its Jan. 8, 2018 meeting. Schools Superintendent Shauna DeMarco stressed that the situation should not impact the district’s upcoming construction of a junior high school.
A trial begins Monday for a former employee of Calgary performance group The Young Canadians who faces several child sex abuse charges. Philip Heerema will go on trial for sexual assault, luring and child porn-related offences. The complainants were teenagers at the time of the alleged abuse — which dates back to 1997 — and were members of The Young Canadians. In January 2014, a police investigation was launched after a student and his parents reported an inappropriate relationship.

“I feel like a monster I feel like a horrible human being. These people who I came to know came to appreciate in my life, came to me and opened up about questions, concerns who I felt I could open up to you as well and as you say I crossed the line” https://t.co/Lkr6jF1yaY
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".
