The Saskatoon Police Service says it could save close to $1 million over 10 years by owning its own plane, instead of leasing one as it does now. That's why the police force is asking the Police Board of Commissioners for the OK to set aside $800,000 for the purchase. "The economics for the suggestion are compelling," wrote Earl Warwick, the service's finance director, in a report to the board.
It started in 1966 as a private ceremony: just Don Leier, standing silently in remembrance of his Korean War pals inside Saskatoon's Montgomery Park. "I was all by myself," said Leier. "I went into the church after that and the next year, this was it — a crowd like that, they showed up. "It just kept growing."
The daughters of Cynthia Crampton, the Saskatoon woman brutally murdered by convicted killer Tyler Hurd, don't want their mother's life defined by the savage act that ended it. "You may have ended my mother's life," Shanda Leftley told Hurd in court Friday, "but you will not end mine. I will remember my mother for who she really was. Crampton struggled with drug addiction and mental health problems in recent years, her daughters say, but her underlying goodness remained.
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".
