A solution to the communal alleyway garbage bins plaguing downtown parts of the city appears to have been found. At a mid-October council meeting, countless letters and photos of overflowing, burning or knocked over bins centred heavily in the Midtown neighbourhood were presented to council and branded as a “real problem” on the streets. The letters read how residents have reached out countless times requesting help or rollout bins, but to little or no avail.
As Saskatchewan’s Justice Minister hints at a lean towards a private marijuana sales model in the province, Mayor Greg Dionne is worried this will cause more problems then it will solve. Late last week, Don Morgan confirmed the province does not “want to be in the ownership or marketing” of marijuana when it becomes legal July 1, rather the province wants to focus on “a competent, well-run, regulatory scheme.”“We don’t want to market it or warehouse it,” Morgan said Thursday when asked on topic.
The future of what is believed to be the second oldest buildings in Saskatchewan is up in the air after the topic received a heavy spotlight during general budget deliberations. Earmarked in this year's budget was $10,000 to gradually takedown and store historically valuable pieces of the Block House and Nisbet Church at Kinsmen Park. Both buildings are currently closed to the public because of structural concerns.
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".
