An update on the Cortney Lake homicide investigation will be happening on Nov. 14, after an original update was postponed this week at the request of the investigative team. Insp. Tom Warren, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary's lead investigator in the case, will update media at 11:30 a.m. at the Fort Townsend headquarters. Lisa Lake, Cortney Lake's mother, will also be making a statement to the media on Tuesday.
It's pretty normal to wake up on one's birthday to a flood of messages from friends, family and other well-wishers. But for one man in St. John's, the birthday greetings are from a string of strangers, thanks to a prank by a "friend." "Help me prank my friend for his birthday. Text him Happy Birthday November 3, 2017 … (His name is Joel)," read signs plastered around the city, including inside a Walmart and at bus shelters.
The demand for tickets for Hey Rosetta! 's annual Christmas shows in St. John's has prompted a venue change, and more tickets will go on sale. Hey Rosetta! announced last week that the December concerts would likely be their last for the "foreseeable future." Tickets went on sale Oct. 16 for the Dec. 21 and 22 shows at the Delta ballroom, and were sold out in minutes. The quick sales prompted outcry from fans, who cited problems getting tickets in the online store.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
