Survivors of a little-known work scheme that saw Indigenous Manitobans forced onto farms and into hard labour are now speaking out about yet another example of their historically grim treatment at the hands of the federal government. "We worked until our hands were blistered, our skin was burnt and we were always hungry," Rebecca Bone recalled from her home in Camperville, Man., more than 300 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg. "They didn't give us food. There was nowhere close to get water."
Cody Joss's mother has a message for whomever hit her son and left him to die on the street. "Give us what we so desperately need, and that's a bit of closure," Sherri Duka said. "Our hearts and souls will never completely heal because forever a piece is missing." Duka talked to the CBC in response to the recent spike in hit and runs in Winnipeg — four in the past month, one of them fatal. Each incident resonated with Duka.
Stephanie McGregor hopes history will be on her side as she attempts to get pregnant with in vitro fertilization. That's because three decades ago, her mother successfully underwent the same fertility treatment ... one of the first in Canada to do so. "I like the idea that she was a pioneer in a way," McGregor, one of a set of triplets borne of her mother's IVF. "It worked for her. So it makes me really hopeful for my own chances."
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".
