The City of Winnipeg is settling with a local business over land taken for road upgrades around Polo Park. In a closed door session Wednesday, The mayor’s inner circle voted for a $250,000 payout to Mid Canada Production. A report says the extension of St. Matthews Avenue blocked the businesses rear loading dock. It also says new sidewalks increased trespassing, noise levels and there is less room to store snow on site. Most of the settlement has been paid out with just under $90,000 remaining.
Knowing it might fill up fast, college student Dray Leclerc put her name down well in advance for a spot in Red River College’s Exchange area residence. "I applied probably like a year earlier than you usually do,” said Leclerc. Leclerc said she still didn't get her first choice. "There was definitely a wait list if you wanted a single room, like I'm in a double one,” said LeclercAll 100 beds at the dorm are full. The college could be eyeing future housing across the street.
Technology could soon help Winnipeg drivers avoid road construction. Transportation department officials are pitching a $390,000 lane closure App. The App would contain up to the minute information on blocked routes. If approved, construction firms and utilities would be mandated to use the App informing drivers of the exact time a lane is being shut down. The program would eventually apply to all routes including bike paths and sidewalks.
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".
