A Winnipeg artist found himself in detective mode on Tuesday afternoon when three of his pieces were stolen from the Exchange District. Cheney Lansard has a number of paintings on display in the lobby of Creative Manitoba, and heard that three had gone missing around 4 p.m. Tuesday when the facility manager, Arlea Ashcroft, gave him a call. “I immediately thought ‘Okay, let’s figure out how we can get them back’,” said Lansard.
The dog days of summer are coming to an end (despite this year’s cooler than average temperatures), but not before Winnipeg’s hounds are able to take advantage of two of the city’s wading pools. On September 2, the Happyland wading pool on Marion Street and the Bruce Park wading pool at 1966 Portage Avenue will open to licensed dogs.
The electric atmosphere that has been a hallmark of the Canada Summer Games shows no signs of slowing down as the competition enters its second week in Winnipeg. Kicking off the final half of the Games, the Sport for Life Centre played host to a number of volleyball matchups on Monday – including Manitoba’s men’s team taking on Team Northwest Territories in what turned out to be a very one-sided result in favour of Team ‘Toba.
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".
