Court delays are an issue the Manitoba government would have to work out if Ottawa decides to lower the legal alcohol limit for drivers. The federal government is considering lowering the legal from 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood to 50 milligrams.
STARS Air Ambulance has had two of its three busiest months on record in June and July. The emergency air ambulance service responded to 95 emergency calls in July, by far the most since it began operating in Manitoba in 2011. In June, STARS had its third busiest month, responding to 68 emergencies. Continued integration with the Manitoba health care system and the new helipad at Health Sciences Centre are two of the reasons for the higher number of calls, according to STARS.
WINNIPEG – With spectators from all over the country in Winnipeg to watch the Canada Summer Games, many haven’t experienced the hot, humid weather that has recently hit the city. The humidex has been at or close to 40 for the past couple of days, far higher than what Team Newfoundland is used to dealing with, said baseball coach Trevor Murphy. Murphy and his other coaches have been telling players to drink more water and stay in the shade whenever possible.
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".
