The man accused of assaulting two Calgary paramedics so badly one suffered a head injury is no longer facing charges due to a medical condition he was suffering from at the time. Prosecutor Tom Buglas directed a stay of proceedings against Kent Douglas Wilson because the Crown can't rule out the 53-year-old's actions "were a direct result of a medical event."
A deadly mix of jealousy, love and "passion gone wrong" was motive for the murder of 24-year-old Jessica Newman, who was turning her life around and trying to be a better mother for her two-year-old son. It's a case of "redemption interrupted," prosecutor Shane Parker said to jurors in his closing arguments Wednesday at Kevin Rubletz's second-degree murder trial. Newman was last seen in March 2015. It would be two months before her body was found in a rural ditch near Balzac.
Charges may be dropped against a Calgary man accused in a fatal hit and run, if a judge sides with defence and agrees police behaved improperly during their interrogation. Robert Mark Varley, 60, is on trial for a hit and run resulting in the death of Farida Abdurahman, 33. She was struck in a crosswalk on Centre Street N. near 43rd Avenue at about 11:15 p.m. on July 27, 2015. Varley had beaten three sets of drunk driving charges in British Columbia before he moved to Calgary in 2011.
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".
