A Saskatchewan man who survived a black bear attack earlier this month says the attack happened fast but the fight lasted about 20 minutes. “It happened so quick. They’re fast. Within less than a second she had me,” Jeff Haydukewich said from his room at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon on Friday. Haydukewich was archery hunting elk in a tree stand on Sept. 4 near Weirdale, about 50 kilometres northeast of Prince Albert, when a mother bear and her three cubs wandered onto the private property.
A man who pleaded guilty to numerous child pornography charges will have to wait for his sentence. Philip Chicoine was set to be sentenced today in Saskatoon provincial court, but the judge requested more time to review the evidence and materials in the case. Chicoine is now scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 14. The Crown is asking for 17 years — the longest sentence in provincial history for such crimes. Chicoine, 27, pleaded guilty to 40 child-porn related charges.
The former leader of a local gang has been granted statutory release and is back in Saskatoon after being sentenced to seven years for what the parole board calls “high-level trafficking of illicit drugs” and directing a criminal organization. Michael McNab was arrested in 2011 as part of Project Empire, an investigation by the Saskatoon Police Service into the Terror Squad.
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".
