There has been a lot of discussion about the minimum wage being raised to $14 per hour in Ontario. It is scheduled to go to $15 per hour on Jan. 1, 2019. The recent increase was a raise of $2.40 per hour. It has jolted many small business owners and not in a good way. If the minimum wage in Manitoba were to go to $15 per hour, many businesses would simply close their doors. There isn’t a high enough demand for many goods and services to afford that level of wages.
News media outlets carry a heavy responsibility or at least they should. News comes in many forms. We have local coffee shop talk and visits with friends and family. That source is considered the most effective and influential. Beyond the very personal sources of news and information we have a variety of sources including traditional newspapers, like this one you are holding in your hands.
The day light hours are actually getting a tiny bit longer, albeit by only two or three minutes a day. Light is a good thing. Light has long been associated with truth and knowledge. People will say, let’s shed a bit of light on a certain topic or subject. It’s a great concept as much better decisions are made in the light of truth rather than the darkness of blind assumptions.In good old rural Manitoba, there has been a lot of decisions made in the darkness of assumptions.
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".
