Three suspects have been arrested after two violent home invasions last week. An 18-year-old man faces 20 charges, including assault with a weapon, two counts of break and enter to commit robbery and 12 firearm-related offences, Winnipeg police spokeswoman Const. Tammy Skrabek said Monday. The man, who turned 18 between the first break-in on July 21 and the second two days later, can't be named because he was a youth when some of the offences are alleged to have taken place.
It was a day that began with elation for volunteers thrilled to work on Habitat for Humanity homes alongside a tireless former U.S. president. But joy turned to concern mid-morning Thursday when 92-year-old Jimmy Carter slumped, suffering from dehydration. Yet even as he was being whisked by ambulance to St. Boniface Hospital, the humanitarian and 39th U.S. president said that work on the 25-house building blitz should go on as planned.
The Progressive Conservative government of Brian Pallister is increasing taxes on the readers of printed newspapers. How? The province has decided to force newspapers to pay recycling fees directly, breaking a long-standing agreement that saw such fees paid out of the provincial sale tax levied on newspaper sales. First the background: Manitoba does something that many other jurisdictions have judged not to be in the public interest. It taxes the sales of printed newspapers.
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".
