Cary-Meagher’s letter of apology did not mention the complaint related to the communications staff. In that case, the integrity commissioner found that Cary-Meagher “did not intend to malign” staff but she did “cast aspersions” on their professional reputations during an Oct. 19 meeting with 100 parents — without first asking staff how they communicated with parents and what details police said must be withheld. Police were invited to the public meeting but the communications staff was not.
Nurses working in Ontario's overcrowded hospitals have walked away from the contract negotiations, saying demands for “efficiencies” will impact patients and staff, says the president of the Ontario Nurses' Association. Vicki McKenna said ONA ended 10 days of negotiations and three days of mediation on Saturday because the Ontario Hospital Association wouldn't budge from its focus on “efficiencies.” “I have to keep reminding them to stop trying to industrialize health care.
One of the longest serving trustees with the Toronto District School Board is taking a leave of absence after two reports by the board's integrity commissioner found she maligned staff. In one case, east-end trustee Sheila Cary-Meagher referred to a female employee she “hated” as a “dyke” and a “b..ch” in casual chatter before a November meeting about a student expulsion.
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".
