When it comes to Winnipeg Transit, Billy Jo Shingoose is more than just a regular! She spends a good part of her day riding the bus! “I spend an hour and 15 minutes there, and hour and 15 back." said Shingoose. "And then when I go to visit my mom." To pass the time she uses her phone. Soon she may not need to dip into her data plan to surf the net while onboard. The City of Winnipeg is considering a pilot project that would bring free Wi-Fi to 12 city buses.
Evacuees from northern communities are now leaving the RBC Convention Centre. But they aren't going home just yet. Instead, the Canadian Red Cross is consolidating the roughly 300 evacuees still without hotels, at the soccer complex on Leila. "The numbers have dictated that." said Shawn Feely from the Canadian Red Cross. But while their address is changing, something else isn't: the threat of mumps. "We've had eight suspected (cases) here in Winnipeg," said Dr. Richard Rusk, Medical Officer of Health.
A bout with the flu can be debilitating for a healthy adult and deadly for seniors. That's why the province is taking new steps to protect some older patients. This year, seniors living in Winnipeg personal care homes will be offered a new type of influenza vaccine. It is a more potent version of the vaccine, with a higher concentration of the antigen than is typically given to the general population.
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".
