A group of Australian students are learning from Saskatoon paramedics, as part of a placement program. Four students from Brisbane, Australia’s Griffith University are shadowing MD Ambulance’s paramedics on their 12-hour shifts. “You never know what you’re going to turn up to, which is one of the highlights of the job because you never know what’s around the corner,” Ellen Quinn, a paramedic student, said.
Two construction companies hired to build the Remai Modern Art Gallery are suing each other, according to court documents. The City of Saskatoon hired construction company EllisDon to build the Remai Modern. EllisDon subcontracted Dynamic Glass & Door to install glass and a curtain wall in the project. In a statement of claim, EllisDon alleges Dynamic failed to follow the subcontract specifications, correct deficient work and complete the work on time.
Expectant parents in Saskatoon are weighing their options when it comes to parental leave. The federal government will give new moms and dads the option to take an extra six months off work to be with their newborns. The current system allows parents to take 12 months paternity leave with 55 per cent weekly salary, capped at $543 per week. The changes will give parents the choice for an extended leave of 18 months with 33 per cent wage, capped at $326 per week.
Here's a look at today's office. Just wook at all the wittle babies!
I'm chatting with new moms about the federal government's changes to Canada's parental leave. See what they have to say tonight on @ctvsaskatoonhttps://t.co/WjGBjjekA9
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".
