People who've lived in Saskatoon's Dundonald neighbourhood for years said concerns over a pond where a five-year-old boy drowned last week are nothing new. "We did go fight it initially," said Cary Tarasoff. He said he and his neighbours raised objections before 2005, when the City of Saskatoon turned the drainage channel behind the school into a storm drainage pond. "It's turned into a slough," said Tarasoff. "There's no reason to have this water right beside the school."
Using "Rural Roots, Urban Strong" as his campaign slogan, veteran Saskatchewan Party MLA Ken Cheveldayoff officially launched his bid Monday to become the party's next leader. Word had leaked last week, after Cheveldayoff made the announcement before a cabinet meeting. He joins Tina Beaudry-Mellor, Alanna Koch, Gordon Wyant and Jeremy Harrison in the race to succeed Brad Wall. Cheveldayoff was first elected in northeast Saskatoon in 2003. He currently represents Saskatoon Willowgrove.
A Saskatoon woman says her heart sank when she learned two innocent bystanders were bitten by Regina police dogs in separate incidents this month. "It has teeth that are so sharp, and that is vicious," said Sheila Tataquason, who has spent the past four years fighting for compensation after she was bitten by a Saskatoon police dog. "I can feel their pain and I feel the sadness that they're probably going through."
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".
