The Northwest Territories government is planning to introduce a new tax to try to recover the territory's declining revenues — some MLAs say they were surprised by the news, while others called out the government for its "cryptic" messaging around it. On Tuesday, Finance Minister Robert C. McLeod said he's planning to introduce legislation for the new land transfer tax in the fall.
A single grandmother in Sanikiluaq, Nunavut, says she barely ate in December after the government of Nunavut slashed her daughter's income assistance. For two months, the family's food allowance was cut down because of poor school attendance — which she says was the result of health issues. "It was pretty hard in December, how [we] were gonna survive," said Lucy Kittosuk, 46, through sniffles and sighs. "I barely ate. I ate once a day, as long as my granddaughter eats, or daughter."
Andrew Morrison said his phone started "buzzing lots and lots" Tuesday morning. Morrison, a vocalist with Iqaluit band the Jerry Cans, said that's when he found out that the band was nominated for two 2018 Juno awards — Breakthrough Group of the Year and Contemporary Roots Album of the Year for their album, Inuusiq. "Shocking, I think is the right word. We had no expectations this time around," Morrison said. The band was hoping to be nominated in the previous two years, to no luck.
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".
