It's a pretty affordable weekend, with free programming from the Winnipeg Design Festival, Manitoba Open Farm Day and some really affordable options at Forth and Wee Johnny's. If you have a bit more cash, FemFest has a few shows this weekend, and if you can dig up some tickets to the sold-out Harvest Moon Festival, you might have a better weekend than anyone else.
Postpone your trip to the lake this weekend by a day and check out a very impressive lineup of music, comedy and art in the city. Times Change(d) is having a New Orleans night with two sets to fit in either before or after your plans Friday night. Wee Johnny's is bringing back a ton of funny female comics with a brand new host and the Wall-to-Wall mural festival is getting things started in West Broadway. If you stay all weekend, Forth's rooftop patio is probably the best way to go.
About two dozen people gathered at a Selkirk clinic Tuesday afternoon to learn how to spot an opioid overdose and administer the life-saving drug naloxone. "It can be a little bit challenging, but the steps are pretty straightforward," said Anlina Sheng who was co-ordinating the training session.
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".
