While Cambridge is well-served by quick trains into King’s Cross, getting anywhere else in the capital has always been something of a mission. Many commuters will have their own tales of getting off the train, only to spend twice as long again getting the Tube across the capital, or having to wait for another train to take you further into town. But soon all that could be a thing of the past, as a brand new service launches connecting Cambridge with the heart of London, and beyond.
The train departing platform one is for… China? Well not quite, but if you’re looking to get away from it all it’s about to become a lot easier to get to a whole host of far-flung destinations, direct from Cambridge Station. From next May the city will be connected to the Thameslink cross-London network, with a fleet of new high-tech trains set to serve the city.
How hard can it be to get out of a chair, hold a conversation in a busy room, or stir a cup of tea? For most of us everyday tasks like these are things we take for granted, but for elderly hospital patients they can cause endless discomfort, difficulty and embarrassment. Now, to help better understand the trials their patients go through on a daily basis, staff at Addenbrooke’s have bought two ‘age simulation suits’, which they hope will give an insight into the daily demands of being elderly.
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".
