Winnipeg charities say they're starting to receive Loblaw gift cards promised to them by the public, after the grocery company started sending them out as an apology for its role in a bread price-fixing scandal. Siloam Mission says it's received several of the $25 cards, and many people have contacted the shelter on social media to ask how they can donate theirs. "It looks like we've got about a half dozen of them that we've been processing just today," said Siloam spokesperson Luke Thiessen.
The Manitoba government has introduced legislation that will see an automatic three-day licence suspension for distracted drivers. The new legislation, introduced Friday by infrastructure minister Ron Schuler, will also establish a seven-day suspension if drivers are caught for a second time. MPI says distracted driving accidents in the province went from 2,415 in 2011 to 11,086 in 2016. "We have a problem.
New legislation that came into effect Thursday will give Manitoba's children's advocate new powers, including the option to release internal reports on deaths of children in care. The changes expand the role of Daphne Penrose beyond child welfare and allow her to examine youth services in areas such as education, health and justice, and to release findings from her office's investigations to the public.
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".
