ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — All provinces and territories have signed on to the new Canadian Agricultural Partnership, but there are still some disagreements about business risk management provisions within the five-year deal that takes effect next April 1. In particular, Saskatchewan says it doesn’t support late participation in AgriStability. That measure would allow producers to sign up for the program after the deadline but with payments reduced by 20 percent.
Several Canadian farm organizations say they expect agriculture ministers will approve a review of business risk management programs at their annual meeting this week in St. John’s. That would put changes to the largest portion of the next policy framework, which was to be signed at the meeting, on hold. Federal, provincial and territorial ministers are meeting July 20-21.
Calvin Gavelin began shaking when he heard that 200 cattle were found dead in the Shamrock Grazing Ltd. pasture last weekend. “My heart stopped again, just reliving that phone call that my cows were dead.”Gavelin, his father, uncle and cousin lost 78 head in a Saskatchewan community pasture in August 1999 due to thirst when staff failed to turn on the water supply to a trough. “The whole farm just stops,” he said. “It’s your whole livelihood.
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".
