For two years, James Farley has been trying to determine who is responsible for a drainage ditch that runs along the north side of his property just west of Regina. In July 2015, the channel flooded. “[The City of Regina] released their water out of their retention ponds into the channel, and the channel can’t handle the water and it back flooded into my crop land, and I lost approximately 50 acres of crop,” Farley said. Farley estimates this flood cost him more than $20,000.
In Saskatchewan 24.1 per cent of children live in poverty. That’s according to a new study from two University of Regina social work associate professors Miguel Sanchez and Garson Hunter. Sanchez has been publishing these annual reports for 20 years. Last year’s found the 2010 child poverty rate in Saskatchewan was 23 per cent. It was 24.6 per cent in 2014, and 24.1 per cent in 2015. That amount doubles for First Nations children, where 50 per cent live in poverty.
Mournful hymns echoed through the Legislative Building as members of Saskatchewan’s Ukrainian community gathered for a service in remembrance of the Holodomor. This imposed famine was orchestrated by the Joseph Stalin regime in 1932 and 1933. Ten million Ukranians lost their lives. “All the grain was taken and a lot of it was exported at below world prices at the time.
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".
