Singer/songwriter Pokey LaFarge strolled over to the food station backstage at the Regina Folk Festival one August weekend some years back and made a simple request: “Can I have some more watermelon, Mom?”“And where’s your plate?” came the response from Donna Losie, a longtime volunteer who has earned the nickname after years hosting the backstage hospitality area at the festival. “He tottered off and got his plate,” she says now laughing.
Saskatchewan Social Services Minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor. MICHAEL BELL / Regina Leader-Post With residents across the province worried they could be tossed out of Saskatchewan Housing Corporation units if their building is sold, the government says that will never be the case. The SHC regularly reviews its stock of housing in the province and weighs it against building occupancy.
Kickers like the Roughriders' Tyler Crapigna will have to a adjust to a different wind profile in the new Mosaic Stadium. MICHAEL BELL / Regina Leader-Post Everyone has a story about the wind in the old Mosaic Stadium. Maybe it’s sitting through a cutting October breeze or watching a gust push a field goal a few yards further — or stop it a few yards short. Take Oct. 27, 2001, for example.
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".
