For a serious canine enthusiast and artist, few experiences could top having a painting featured at one of the continent’s biggest dog shows—but that’s exactly what happened for Alec Baldwin. Baldwin, a 24-year-old artist from Gimli, Man., earned an opportunity to provide the featured artwork for the Purina National Dog Show in Philadelphia, which he and his family attended over the weekend with VIP tickets that accompanied the painting commission.
Moved by Coun. Russ Wyatt and seconded by Coun. Janice Lukes at council on Wednesday, the motion explains the City of Winnipeg Charter Act requires “ALL meetings to be open,” whereas EPC sometimes meets behind closed doors for what Mayor Brian Bowman has referred to as “informal” EPC briefings. Previous administrations also held such meetings, but Bowman has added two chairs to the table: one for Coun. Jenny Gerbasi and the other for Coun. Matt Allard.
Winnipeg's mayor says a provincial funding gap leaves the city with little choice but to drastically chop bus routes, cut drivers and increase fares. Brian Bowman is calling on the Manitoba Progressive Conservative government to restore the 50-50 transit funding agreement that ended with the passage of an omnibus budget bill last week. Without the provincial funds, the city will be saddled with a $10 million funding gap, Bowman said in a statement Wednesday.
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".
