Human kindness was in action in Winnipeg Sunday as Olympian and humanitarian Clara Hughes took a tour with Ogijiita Pimatiswin Kinamatwin (OPK). OPK as it’s known, is an organization supporting Indigenous youth. It gathers on Sundays to help people in need. "Makes me feel loved. Like I have family,” said Steven Michael Gagnon who joined the group when he was 16 and is now 23. “I grew up without a family. Being with OPK is like a family."
A Manitoba Hydro customer who installed solar panels this summer is fighting with the crown corporation over a series of bills. Speaking from his home in the Rural Municipality of De Salaberry near St. Pierre Jolys, Jarrod Chamberlin said the 35 panels on his property produce just under 50 per cent of the power needed to run his home. That’s why in October and November 2017 he said he was surprised to see his bills showing a credit. First for $181.01, then $841.61.
A highly destructive invasive species of beetle is on the move in Winnipeg. The city confirms it's discovered emerald ash borer infestation inside three trees in the Archwood neighbourhood. On Wednesday people from Natural Resources Canada and the City of Winnipeg's forestry department put on a demonstration to show how crews identify trees with emerald ash borer. They shave down the bark and look for galleries, where larva of the insect eats and moves.
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".
