The retirement dream of a Moose Jaw, Sask., resident is slipping away into the Wakamow Valley. Ian Searle's home is in an area deemed unsafe by the city due to slumping. He and a family member across the street have been ordered to vacate the land by the end of July. Searle, a former Snowbird pilot, now has only a couple of months to find a new house to retire to, as well as to bulldoze or move the one he has. He also has to quickly say goodbye to his retirement dream of a cliffside view.
Memory and alcohol consumption were the two topics of focus during the cross examination of a first-degree murder witness in Regina on Friday. The woman had previously testified that cocaine fuelled much of the violence at a heavy-drinking house party in August 2014 where Shawn Douglas, 54, was assaulted. Prosecutors say Douglas died from blunt force trauma after being bound and beaten with tools. His body was discovered in a rural area outside the city.
The lot at Victoria Avenue and Albert Street in Regina, promised to be the home of Saskatchewan's tallest building, is still a large hole. The space is slated to become the Capital Pointe hotel and condominium project — a 27-storey condominium building with 186 units, as well as a 12-storey hotel with 140 suites. Excavation on that site began last fall after it sat vacant since 2011, when the Plains Hotel was demolished. Fortress Real Developments took over the project in mid-2014.
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".
