A hashtag on Twitter is sparking conversations across the globe and here at home on sexual harassment and assault. In mid-October, the words “Me Too” went viral, prompting many victims to share experiences of sexual harassment and assault, or share messages of solidarity. It’s the kind of dialogue advocate and former RCMP officer Sherry Lee Benson-Podolchuk has long been encouraging. “Having the conversation brings in the people who have suffered from before.
A Manitoba family is left waiting for answers after an altercation with RCMP that left a man dead. Family members have identified the man shot and killed by RCMP early Wednesday morning near Lake Manitoba First Nation as 18-year-old Bill Saunders. His older sister Rebecca Saunders told CTV News that her brother was the kind of guy who loved to joke around and cared about his family. “He’s not the type of person who would go out to hurt anyone else,” Saunders said.
A discovery unearthed in our province is shining a light on a relative of Canada’s most recognizable rodent. A jaw of the now extinct giant beaver, or Castoroides, was found in a gravel pit in Southeast Manitoba by someone extracting gravel for commercial purposes. That fossil was handed over to the Manitoba Museum, where Graham Young works as the curator of paleontology and geology.
“Having the conversation brings in the people who have suffered before. They may never say anything, but at least they’re acknowledged"......

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".
