A team of national reviewers reported on concerns about the "emotional safety" of students, high attrition rates, quality management problems, and conflicts between instructors at the College of North Atlantic's respiratory therapy program before its accreditation was pulled earlier this summer. CNA has declined to provide any details on issues that had been identified. But now documents obtained by CBC News shed more light on what led to the program having its accreditation withdrawn.
St. John's city council says it is following through with plans to take sterner measures to recover overdue taxes. That includes putting owners on notice that their water could be cut off, ramping up potential legal action, and planning a tax sale for delinquent properties. Earlier this year, a CBC News investigation revealed that property arrears were a $13-million-plus problem in Newfoundland and Labrador's capital city.
The Newfoundland and Labrador government says it still plans to consolidate all St. John's courthouses and justice services in one place — but it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon. The Department of Justice and Public Safety recently signed a 10-year contract with the owners of Atlantic Place, the downtown St. John's office building that houses provincial court facilities. That contract runs to 2027.
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".
