A Nova Scotia couple are upset they were told they must continue to make payments for an extended warranty they purchased from Sears or have their credit rating negatively impacted. "I just didn't feel it was right for us to pay for something that Sears had absolutely no intention of providing," Alan Benninger told CBC News. Sears announced Oct. 16 that it would no longer honour warranties as of Oct 18.
Some Canadian owners of Volkswagens at the centre of the diesel-emissions scandal are still awaiting word on how they will be compensated, six months after the company agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit. While owners of vehicles with 2.0-litre engines have seen the settlement process move quickly — at least once the initial wrinkles were ironed out — it's not been nearly as easy for those with imported or higher-end vehicles affected by the carmaker's emissions-cheating software.
Thousands of peeling Nova Scotia licence plates are being reported from around the province. So if the reflective paint is starting to fall off yours, then you're not alone. The province says it's identified the problem with a batch of plates manufactured in 2008, between the sequence of ENG001 to ETA499. During that period, 90,000 plates were produced. But so far, the province says only 1,500 of them have been returned because reflective sheeting is separating from the metal plate.

@CCCyclistGC Sears wants you to continue paying but says the amount will be deducted to shorten the number of payments. What do you do at the end of your payments if this adjustment hasn't been made? Sears will be long gone by then so who do you contact? why not just stop charging now?
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".
