A storm ripped through a small Saskatchewan community Thursday evening — leaving a levelled curling rink and scattered debris in its wake. Mayor Jeff Vollmer said he didn't spot a funnel cloud or tornado, but said the winds were especially powerful. "The sky was a funny greenish blue," Vollmer said. Through his window, he had watched what looked like a 'big wall of rain' advance towards the town.
A wild storm seemed to end as quickly as it began, according to one resident from Walheim, Sask. Judi Gurski said she heard a big wind come up as the intense storm rolled through the community Tuesday after 8 p.m."It was raining cats and dogs," she said. The cracking noises followed shortly after the heavy rain began. "I looked out the side window — and we have a huge tree right beside our house — and it had snapped like a toothpick." Gurski said the tree fell on her husband's truck.
It was only a year and a half ago when Kenton Weisgerber was an addict, uncertain of where he would sleep at night. "I was a broken shell of what you see," he said. He took the first step towards recovery, but didn't know what would happen next. "I was leaving detox. I had no where to stay. I had nowhere to call a safe place." That's when the Phoenix Residential Society contacted him about Regina's Housing First program.
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".
