I assume when most people get time off at this time of the year, they plan their trips to be around the Battlefords or elsewhere around Saskatchewan and other Western provinces. As you can probably guess, my plans aren’t like most people. Nearly two weeks ago, I drove out from North Battleford at four in the morning and set out on an 18-hour drive back to my old stomping grounds of Fort Frances, Ont., which is where I got my start in sports reporting from 2011 to 2013.
They have played together only once in a competitive setting. Now sisters Anna and Megan Atcheynum will have a chance to play together on an international stage next week in Toronto as they will compete for the Saskatchewan Under 19 girls volleyball team at the North American Indigenous Games. “The last time we played together was in my senior year of high school and she was in Grade 10,” said Megan, who is studying agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan.
On a weekend that saw a number of events taking place to celebrate Canada’s birthday, Battlefords Community Disc Golf Club president Evan Zimmer was pleased to see the turnout at Fort Battleford Saturday for their Canada 150 Disc Golf Tournament. “Considering that we had a lot to compete with, we’re pretty excited with having 40 competitors come on and take part in what was quite a busy weekend,” Zimmer said.
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".
