A Winnipeg group that works with Yazidi refugees says it's been assured by federal officials that a boy recently rescued from ISIS will be reunited with his mother in Winnipeg. "We have been in contact with [Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada] and we have been assured the IRCC is expediting this case," said Belle Jarniewski, who is a member of the Operation Ezra working group. Last week, 12-year-old Emad Mishko Tamo was rescued from ISIS after being held captive for nearly three years.
A Winnipeg mother says she can't believe her 12-year-old son is alive. Nofa Zaghla, a Yazidi refugee from northern Iraq, says her family was separated in August 2014 when they were captured by ISIS. She came to Canada five months ago with four of her six children. Days ago, she got a call from a relative in Iraq who said her son, Emad Mishko Tamo, is alive after being rescued from the Islamist extremists.
It's business as usual at Neechi Commons after no one bid on the property at auction on Wednesday. Assiniboine Credit Union put the building and land up for auction to pay off the approximately $3.8 million mortgage. "The process now is to hire a commercial Realtor, advertise the building more broadly and start to accept offers," credit union executive vice-president Jennifer Mullen-Berube said in a statement.
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".
