The race to claim the Saskatoon Fairview MLA seat left empty by Jennifer Campeau has barely begun, but already one candidate for the NDP ticket is getting scrappy with the acclaimed Saskatchewan Party hopeful. "I think it's somewhat brave of somebody, especially who is a public school trustee, to run for the SaskParty nomination," said Keith Jorgenson — one of three people vying to become the NDP candidate — of his potential rival, SaskParty candidate Cameron Scott.
You might have seen someone do it, or done it yourself:You're riding in downtown Saskatoon in one of the city's protected one-way bike lanes when you spot another cyclist approaching you from the opposite direction — in the same lane. "It's a little annoying," said Sasha Kisin while riding in the 4th Avenue and 23rd Street protected lanes — in the right direction — Saturday. "It isn't best practice," added Cathy Walsh, the co-chair of biking advocacy group Saskatoon Cycles.
When Shelby Rushton heard Friday from a friend in Outlook, Sask., that two men had died after a boat capsized on Lake Diefenbaker during a storm the previous night, she thought, "Oh, boy, here's another one." An estimated six to eight people have now drowned in the province since January, says Rushton, the CEO of the Saskatchewan branch of the Lifesaving Society. "And of course it's during National Drowning Prevention Week," she said of Thursday night's incident.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
