A major sponsor got cold feet at the last minute. The ceremony was moved from the bride's hometown of Moose Jaw to Regina, where only a small group of friends and family watched the couple get hitched in a chapel. And their wedding included no sponsored limousine, Saskatoon Berry champagne or gospel choir, as called for in their "online dream wishlist." But Jason Mielke and Rebecca Michelle Winter stand by their decision to use mostly donations to pay for their recent Nov. 25 nuptials.
The City of Saskatoon is one step closer to stripping councillors of the power to approve who wins city contracts. The change, which would see city staffers take on that approval role, is part of a broader revamp of the city's procurement policy that could go into effect by this summer. "Council is currently placed in a position of jeopardy where they are vulnerable to allegations of outside political influence with respect to procurement," the city wrote in a recent report.
Just 10 days before Cade Sprackman died after getting caught in a shredder at Shercom Industries' tire recycling plant north of Saskatoon, another worker was injured at the same workstation. But the company did not replace the jam-prone shredder, or add an emergency stop cable, until after the January 2015 death of the recent high school graduate and film school hopeful, according to a legal ruling released Thursday.
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".
