A marine biologist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada is "chomping at the bit" to learn more about a leatherback turtle found frozen in the ice of the Bras d'Or Lake in Cape Breton. Mike James has studied leatherbacks, including those seen around the coast of Cape Breton, for 20 years at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography.
A creature that co-existed with the dinosaurs has washed up dead near shore in Islandview, Cape Breton, in Nova Scotia. Ron MacLean spotted the rare, endangered leatherback turtle along the Bras d'Or Lake. The 360-kilogram carcass is now on its way to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans lab in Charlottetown, P.E.I. for analysis. "They'll check and see what they think happened, and we'll wait and see.
A young family doctor in northern Cape Breton has turned to Facebook to help her get some time off. Dr. Nicola Smith, 32, grew up in Dartmouth, N.S., and has worked in rural Neils Harbour for two and a half years. Just a few days ago, she directed a post to her friends on Facebook, hoping to interest a few doctors in covering some shifts this summer at Buchanan Memorial Hospital. In four or five days, the post has been shared almost 300 times. "That wasn't my intention.
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".
