I cannot handle American excuses anymore. There is a young girl being kept away from her family because she is an undocumented immigrant in Texas. This girl was escorted to a hospital, and now guards stand watch because she is, according to the authorities, a flight risk. The child’s name is Rosamaria de la Cruz. This is where we’ve gotten: a crying, unwell, little girl is a flight risk without a passport and at the age of ten? Try again, American government, try again.
Monday marked the official beginning of Man Up Against Violence’s week of programming. Roz Kelsey, a faculty member of Kinesiology and Health Studies, heads the event, meant to highlight gendered violence. Thomas Gallet, an international business student is a student assistant with the initiative, and highlights a collaboration with campus security surrounding the sexual assault reporting process as a particularly important piece of the schedule.
Former candidate Maria Aman has lodged a human rights complaint against the University of Regina Students’ Union. Aman says that she made the complaint to highlight issues within the organization, in her words, “To expose the corruption that occurred during the 2017 elections.”The complaint came after Aman was removed from the 2017 elections and her competitor, Shawn Wiskar, was selected as vice-president of student affairs. Maria gave further reasoning as to why she made the complaint.
@kmnogue Ummm, ask a local community group to scout your space for you. Make hotels as short a distance as you can. The only event I’ve gone to is the Pacific Rim Disability Conference but even that had some issues.
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".
