An outbreak of mumps in northern Manitoba is declining, but infection rates are still abnormally high. The rate of reported infections in the region declined in September after three consecutive months when nearly 100 new cases were reported. “For September, it looked like we had 62 cases in the north, which was down from 97 in August,” said Dr. Michael Isaac, chief medical officer for the Northern Health Region (NHR).
It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say Cranberry Portage-based artist Irvin Head has carved out a better life for himself. Over the past two decades, Head has become one of northern Manitoba’s most notable artists, creating hundreds of unique, intricate carvings along the way. Head’s work has taken him around the world, from Quebec to New York City to Switzerland and many places in between. Head even showcased some of his work during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Creighton’s water supply is safe again after a precautionary boil water advisory last week – but another may soon be on the way. In a statement released by the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency on Nov. 2, Creighton’s municipal water supply was considered temporarily unsafe after a pipe was replaced during work on the Town’s major water/sewer project. The advisory was officially lifted on Nov. 10. Water samples taken from Creighton take additional time to be tested.
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".
