When it comes to composite sketches of crime suspects, Canadian police forces are going back to the drawing board — literally. "At one time there was interest in utilizing computer programs," said Canada RCMP spokesperson Harold Pfleiderer. "The general shift has been back to paper and pencils." That's because people are more likely to spend time contemplating an image if it's hand drawn, he said.
A visually impaired woman is speaking out after a staff member at Chuck E. Cheese's denied her entry because of her service dog. On Monday evening, Ashley Nemeth went to Chuck E. Cheese's in Regina with two of her kids, her husband and her guide dog Rick. She is blind and was refused service because of her yellow Labrador. The encounter brought on a wave of emotions, in part because she knew Rick could be there but mostly because her children were there, too.
The teenager who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a Regina girl was like an ordinary kid in many ways — except that he took part in a brutal killing. On Tuesday, the teen received a seven-year sentence through Saskatchewan's Intensive Rehabilitative Custody Supervision (IRCS) program, with four years to be served in custody. He's 19 now but was 16 at the time of Hannah Leflar's murder and cannot be named because of his age.
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".
