For the first time, the City of Regina will be hosting the Run for Childhood Cancer on Saturday at Wascana Park in front of the Legislature. Former Saskatchewan Roughrider Dan Rashovich is one of the chairs for the run. “It’s also a walk, so for those people who don’t like to run, there is the walk portion of it,” he said. Raising awareness for childhood cancer is a passion for Rashovich. He said the colour for childhood cancer is gold, so he expects to see lots of people out wearing gold.
The Regina Armoury was open to civilians Saturday, in hopes of boosting the number of part-time reservists in the city. Over the last few years, as a recruiter, Sgt. David Slywka with the Regina Rifles said numbers have dwindled. However, he said it’s not solely due to the lack of recruitment but retention. “The numbers weren’t coming in to replace the members that we’ve been releasing,” explained Sgt. Slywka.
The Labour Day Classic for 2017 is in the books. Now it’s time for the Banjo Bowl to close out the home and home series for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Many eyes are on Premier Brad Wall, who infamously played his banjo in a video taking a shot at the Blue Bombers. On the CJME Morning Show, Woodsy had an important question for Wall about the banjo. “Are you going to bring out the banjo and chirp the Manitoba premier?
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".
