A popular sports facility in Hants County, N.S., is out of commission after taking a devastating hit from Mother Nature. The sports dome at the East Hants Sportsplex in Lantz was ripped open by Tuesday's high winds and has crumpled to the ground. "The combination of the pressure inside, with the gust of wind, just tore the fabric wide open," said Scott Forward, the general manager of the East Hants Sportsplex.
With another nor'easter barrelling down on Nova Scotia, people who live on Big Lake in Lower East Chezzetcook say they are fed up with the lack of effort being put into making repairs to a breached berm that protects the lake from the ocean. "The only area of the beach that really needs to be reinforced is about 100 feet," said Doug Bethune, who moved to the area 46 years ago.
It's going to be a busy couple of weeks for members of the military as they work to repair the Bonaventure Anchor Memorial in Halifax's Point Pleasant Park. The memorial is a tribute to Canadian military members who lost their lives at sea. The names of dozens of Canadian navy and air force members who died during peacetime are etched into plaques beside the giant anchor. The anchor faces the mouth of Halifax Harbour and has been badly battered by dozens of storms over the years.
St. Matthews Church in Halifax is being evacuated. One of the steeples came crashing down in last nights storm and another has been damaged. Homeless shelter in the basement will be moved to another location for tonight.@CBCNShttps://t.co/aHAnH6swsI
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".
