A group of volunteers in Hague, Sask., are working hard to build new homes for families who lost them during last year’s Fort McMurray wildfires. The Mennonite Disaster Service joined hands with Zak’s Building Group in Hague back in January. Together, the group began building houses in May and has since built three homes for Fort McMurray residents. “I think it’s very exciting for them,” said Ike Epp, MDS’s project manager.
A Warman RCMP corporal has pleaded guilty to assaulting a teen boy while on duty. Cpl. Dean Flaman entered the plea to one count of assault Wednesday in Saskatoon Provincial Court. A second charge against him of assault was stayed by the Crown. The officer was arrested Aug. 8 of last year in connection with a February 2016 incident. According to an RCMP media release, police received a complaint just after 1:30 a.m. Feb. 24 of a suspicious person going through vehicles in Warman.
A heavy police presence outside the Confederation Inn led to multiple arrests Monday afternoon. The Saskatoon Police Service surrounded the building around 12 p.m. after a stolen vehicle was located in the hotel’s parking lot. Police say the call originated from an RCMP report of a stolen vehicle from Spiritwood, Sask. Upon arrival, officers immediately arrested three men nearby on suspicion of possession of stolen property. Saskatoon police Sgt. Tonya Gresty said a fourth man fled the scene on foot.
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".
