Winnipegger Sheila Kline is finding out just how tough it is to find an apartment these days. The single mother of two has been searching for more than a month for a three-bedroom unit in Transcona, where her children go to school. But so far, no luck. And it's the same story with Manitoba's average vacancy rate, which also has fallen to 0.7 per cent -- the lowest provincial rate in the country -- from one per cent in both October and April of last year.
It was also there that many battalions from Manitoba made their impact. Canadians were involved in many of the biggest conflicts on what was known as the Western Front, with Vimy Ridge probably being the most famous, but Passchendaele was no less significant. The Second Battle of Passchendaele, which began on Oct. 26, 1917, came to a decisive end 100 years ago this Nov. 10. In all, Canadian casualties amounted to over 15,000, with over 4,000 deaths, in just 16 days of battle.
“We have lots of evidence of other public figures whose past has become known to us yet there are no media stories pursuing it,” Sinclair said. The Manitoba senator, a former associate chief judge and head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on residential schools, suspects unconscious racism is motivating Manitoba media to keep the story going since before the provincial election.
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".
