It’s officially fall, but it’s going to feel like the height of the summer this weekend. Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Ottawa and much of eastern and southern Ontario. High temperatures in Ottawa are forecast to reach between 30 and 32 degrees Saturday and Sunday, with humidex values making it feel more like 40. Those temperatures, if reached, will break heat records.
Ottawa Police say a man has been charged following a fire at a home in Orléans. Firefighters were called to 6236 Paddler Way, just north of Jeanne D'arc, at around 6:45 p.m. Thursday. Several neighbours reported black smoke coming from the back of a home. The homeowners were out of town. Early Thursday the Arson unit tweeted that a man had been charged. One male charged with arson to property and break and enter in relation to the fire that occurred on the 6200 block of Paddler Way.
Ottawa Police are investigating a homicide in broad daylight in the Carlington neighbourhood. Officers were called to a residential area of Caldwell Avenue around 3:20 p.m. Wednesday after a man was shot. Ottawa Paramedics say 20-year-old Hamzeh Serhan was rushed to the trauma centre in critical condition. He required resuscitation while en route. There, he dies of his injuries. Police say three men were sitting outside on Caldwell Avenue, when one of the men was shot.
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".
