The jury has been chosen for the trial of Anthony George, charged with second-degree murder in the death of his cellmate at London’s Elgin-Middlesex Detention Centre. Six women and six men, chosen after two days of jury selection, are set to begin hearing evidence on Monday. George is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Adam Kargus, 29, of Sarnia, on Oct. 31, 2013 inside the provincial jail.
Now, he’s got it. But even with a blunt new report effectively calling into question its future as a working dam, London’s mayor won’t say whether he’s for fixing the broken Springbank Dam or leaving it as it is. Matt Brown, who campaigned on a pledge to repair the dam, was tight-lipped Thursday, a day after a new report revealed the “extreme” complexity of fixing the broken dam. The politicians — the report heads to them next week — need to hear first from Londoners, he insists.
Every time the phone rings lately, Deb Abrams wonders if she’s going to have to wait again. “I think, here we go again,” she said. Her son, Shane Kargus, 29, was beaten to death overnight on Halloween 2013 at Elgin-Middlesex Detention Centre (EMDC). The second-degree murder trial of his cellmate, Anthony George, is scheduled to begin Sept. 25 in London, with jury selection starting Wednesday. But only after a long wait and some delays.
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".
