Ontario Provincial Police officers have been cleared of any involvement in the death of a Rideau Lakes Township man who shot himself in early June. In a media statement Monday, the province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) announced it has concluded its investigation into the June 3 incident and police were not responsible for the man’s death. SIU director Tony Loparco said in the statement a 43-year-old man suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and succumbed to his injuries days later.
Employees have been skipping lunch in order to afford their electricity bills, a local business owner told a top Hydro One executive Thursday. Ferio Pugliese, the utility’s executive vice-president of customer care and corporate affairs, said Hydro One has taken steps to reduce the cost burden on its customers – but acknowledged there is more to be done.
I’ve been covering Mayor David Henderson on the city beat for more than a decade now, and can still not think of a more stirring speech of his than the one he made at the arts hall of fame gala. It was the spring of 2008, and Henderson, then in his first term, waxed poetic, somewhat uncharacteristically, about how the performing arts make Brockville a better city.
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".
