Brixton Green, the community body seeking to build affordable rented homes on a redeveloped Somerleyton Road, is organising a public meeting on Wednesday 7 March to launch a campaign for Lambeth council to support its plans. The meeting will take place downstairs at The Department Store 248 Ferndale Road SW9.
The Carnegie library building in Herne Hill was partially re-opened this afternoon (15 February) as work to excavate its basement continued. Protesters from the Defend the Ten campaign rallied outside, where they spoke to BBC TV’s local London news, and later inspected the ground-floor main hall that opened today. The council says that it will be open 40 hours a week with a self-service machine that will allow users to borrow, renew and return items, and pay for loan or overdue charges.
Brixton was yesterday (11 February) the setting for the premiere of a unique new film, an education drama that explains how a criminal trial works. It has been produced by Lawyers in the Soup Kitchen (LISK) – the free legal advice service operating from the Brixton Soup Kitchen on Coldharbour Lane – with help from legal and creative professionals. Brixton on Trial was filmed in the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand in London.
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".
