A large majority of businesses vying to sell pot in Manitoba come July might not be able to. The province has received more than 100 pitches from businesses hoping to sell cannabis at stores, but the government’s request for proposal says it only intends to choose up to four proposals. “We have to keep in mind that’s four master licenses that reflect hundreds or dozens of actual retail locations,” said John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9.
Crowds of people braved frigid temperatures on Boxing Day on a mission to get a good deal. Before 6 a.m., temperatures hovered at around -29. With the wind chill, it felt like -39. Josh Parenteau waited outside Best Buy for hours before it opened, hoping to get a TV. “Looking for a 55 inch,” Parenteau said. “I got long johns on so I’m nice and warm.”Despite the crowds, according to a survey by Prairie Research Associates, most Manitobans plan to avoid the mayhem that is Boxing Day shopping.
What began as an “ah-ha” moment for one student is inspiring students and teachers across the city. When Amina Mohamed was playing basketball, a referee told her he was concerned the pin tying her hijab — a head scarf worn by some Muslim women — may hurt her or others. “Me taking it off during the game just wasn’t respectful to myself,” Mohamed said. Her solution was to give students the option to wear a tight-fitting sporty hijab instead.
4 years today. Pinching myself realizing that’s when @CTVAtlantic took a chance and sent this TelePrompTer gal to Moncton to report. It’s taken guts, not glamour. Some say don’t go into journalism b/c the industry is dying. I say, go for it. Being a journalist makes me feel alive
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".
