A recent feature series in the prestigious Lancet medical journal has drawing attention to some of the shortcomings of the Canadian healthcare system, particularly the inequities in care for indigenous people in northern and remote communities. Two faculty members at UNBC and one Prince George-based surgeon feature prominently in the Lancet's recent in-depth feature series, which examines the strengths of the Canadian system while also arguing that it is overdue for reform.
Sebastian Martin, a man who chased Jordan Taylor McLeod into the night with a shotgun and who, according to a key witness, said 'I got him boss,' shortly after McLeod was murdered, was little more than a minor player in the crime, according to his defence lawyer. Martin's defence lawyer, James Heller, finished his closing arguments on Thursday by making the case that Martin should be found guilty of second degree murder.
The court heard that a debt of drug money, as well as a messy love triangle were the main motives in the 2015 murder of Jordan Taylor McLeod. Three men - brothers Darren Sundman and Kurtis Sundman, and Sebastian Martin - are each facing a count of first-degree murder related to the Jan. 16, 2015 death of then-24-year old Jordan Taylor McLeod. All men had been involved in trafficking cocaine and were heavy users of methamphetamine, the court heard.
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".
