It’s the final day of Canada’s Farm Progress Show for 2017 and organizers are celebrating Heritage Day in honour of the 40th anniversary. A team of Clydesdales will lead the antique tractor parade around the grounds today, winding through the latest innovations in farm equipment at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Rain and wind yesterday resulted in an attendance drop year-over-year of about 2,000 people but was still strong at 14,500.

CARON, Sask. — Vickie and Dennis Derksen feel a strong sense of responsibility toward their bees. Without them, their retirement project wouldn’t be the “cool and wonderful thing” that Vickie says it is. “It’s like having any kind of animal and you want to look after them properly,” she said.
The 40th edition of Canada’s Farm Progress Show has kicked off in Regina. Eight innovations entered in the show’s annual competition received special awards at the opening ceremony. TankFull, a division of Duck Mountain Environmental, received a gold award for its septic tank level monitoring system. It uses ultrasonic technology to automatically send a signal that the tank is near full so that a truck can be dispatched to empty it.
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".
