Commuters are once again facing congestion on the A14 near Cambridge this morning as a lorry has broken down, causing delays for morning traffic. The westbound carriageway is running slowly this morning following the breakdown between junction 13 for the A141 Spittals Way (Spittals Interchange) and J21 A1 (Brampton Hut). One lane has been closed on the road, as the lorry awaits recovery, causing long tailbacks.
Rebelling against the Government won’t have made South Cambridgeshire’s MP many friends in her own party, but it seems Heidi Allen has at least earned some fans on social media. Last night the Tory MP was one of 11 Conservatives to vote for a debate in parliament on the final terms of the Government’s final Brexit deal with the EU. In doing so she helped deliver Theresa May her first parliamentary defeat as Prime Minister, following a marginal victory of 309 to 305.
A woman has died after her car plunged into a water-filled ditch. Madeleine Parnwell, of First Turf Fen Road, Warboys, was driving a green Volvo Torslanda along Puddock Road, Ramsey, last night (Wednesday 13), when the vehicle came off the road. The 68-year-old's vehicle fell into the ditch that runs along the length of the road. Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene at about 9.30pm, but Mrs Parnwell was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
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".
