For the low, low price of 10 bucks, pretty much anyone can help chose the next premier of Saskatchewan. It sounds crass, however no other political party in Saskatchewan can guarantee such direct input, as the new leader for the Saskatchewan Party will be our premier for the next 2.5 years. The five declared candidates have tried, sometimes desperately, to highlight any connection they have to rural Saskatchewan, no matter how tenuous. The reason is obvious. A significant number of Sask.
“The day Brad Wall retired was the best day of my life.”That’s one of the first online statements I read shortly after Premier Wall announced he was stepping down from politics. My initial reaction was ‘Wait … what?’ The commenter was married and had two children, yet the best day of his life was when Brad Wall retired? It seemed a sad treatise on the state of his perspective on life.
Exactly four years ago, I had a newborn baby boy, and a two-year-old girl who was wondering what happened to the perfect life she had prior to the entrance of her little brother. To restore some order into her wounded world, I took her out for a couple of hours by herself. To ensure she was not short of attention and personal adoration, I invited her Nana to come with us as well.
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".
