Staffers at the Brockville Mental Health Centre were disappointed a fine imposed on their employers, in connection with the stabbing of a nurse, was not higher, a union official said Thursday. But Vicki McKenna, first vice-president of the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA), said the $75,000 fine is higher than usual. “We explained to them that this is actually a very high fine for the judge to place,” said McKenna.
The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group has been fined $75,000 over a 2014 incident in which a nurse was stabbed by a patient at the Brockville Mental Health Centre. The sentence, announced in Brockville on Wednesday, lands in the middle of submissions presented by the Crown and defence after the institution was convicted on one of five charges over the incident.
Brockville is a long way from the path of Monday’s total solar eclipse, but one local astronomy buff hopes to give Aquatarium visitors a virtual experience of the planetary phenomenon. Paul Bullock will run an exact simulation of the eclipse in the planetarium on the Aquatarium’s fourth floor. “What I plan to do is run it on real time, so that people can come and look at the ceiling safely and see what’s happening outside,” said Bullock, a former teacher.
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".
