Newfoundland and Labrador politicians are using the arrival of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the entire federal cabinet in St. John's as an opportunity to try and get movement on provincial issues. "I wanted to give them as much free time as I could give them. So if they wanted to grab an umbrella and walk downtown and just get a sense of the city, maybe see some of Signal Hill, get a sense of what's around, get a sense of Memorial University," Seamus O'Regan told CBC.
Comedian Pete Soucy is considering vying for the seat that will soon be vacated by MP Judy Foote. Soucy is best known for his character Snook, who he's played for decades on stage, television and been featured on DVDs and CDs. Soucy was also host of the VOCM Radio's Backtalk, until the show was cancelled earlier this year. Soucy declined an interview, but told CBC News he is talking to people in the riding to assess the level of support, and will have more to say when Foote steps down.
The Minister responsible for persons with disabilities is speaking out after a St. Anthony doctor allegedly advised a mother to end the life of her disabled daughter. "This is not acceptable," Sherry Gambin-Walsh told CBC Radio's On The Go Wednesday"It's not acceptable to government, it's not acceptable to the individual citizens, families or our society. Disability is not to be confused with suffering."
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
