Wearing a full-length skirt as she drummed and sang, Teedly Linklater and her family led more than 2,000 people through downtown Saskatoon during the city's second Rock Your Roots Walk for Reconciliation. "All my ancestors, my grandparents I wish they were here to see, to be a part of this truth and reconciliation," said Linklater, a Cree mother of four from the Thunderchild First Nation, Sask. The walk, now in its second year, is part of events marking National Aboriginal Day in Saskatoon.
Saskatoon residents have expressed mixed feelings over a plan to make users pay for the garbage they create. Councillors on the committee overseeing waste management voted unanimously on Monday to move the cost of garbage collection onto utility bills. "I think that's really dumb of them," said Saskatoon resident Ben Foreman. He said he would prefer to see the city stick with a garbage collection system funded by property taxes. Foreman said his household fills one bin of garbage each month.
A grieving mother in Lanigan, Sask., said she hopes her son's death serves as a wake-up call for her community. Drew Rossen, 19, was killed when he was a passenger in an ATV rollover Saturday evening, in a field north of Lanigan Central High School. He did not appear to be wearing a helmet or a seatbelt. Susanna Rossen said her son and his friends were drinking at a house party on Saturday evening and were planning to attend a graduation party later that night. "Drew loved his friends," said Rossen.
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".
