THOUSANDS of pounds is being made available to Richmondshire communities along the Tour de Yorkshire route to celebrate its return. The iconic race will pass through the region in May and this week councillors agreed to release a £15,000 cash pot at a meeting of Richmondshire District Council’s Corporate Board.

ORGANISERS of one of the most popular outdoor festivals in Hambleton are gearing up for another bumper event this year. Thirsk Picnic in the Park is set to return to the town for its thirteenth outing this summer in the grounds of Thirsk Hall off Newsham Road. The festival’s original founders - Sue Calvert and Jane Burgess - remain the driving force behind the event and have overseen its growth from 450 tickets sold 13-years-ago through to the sell-out crowd of 2,500 in 2017.
A SWEET shop owner is taking a taste of Helmsley life to children in Uganda when she visits to help great ape conservation efforts. Lynn Hempsall, who runs the Helmsley Traditional Sweet Shop, had never travelled alone or outside Europe when she embarked on her first self-funded trip to the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Borneo in 2015.
As a Boro fan I actually take no delight in Sunderland's depressing demise. And this is a great piece by @Scottwilsonecho looking at one particular costly mistake the club made. The money wasted on this ill-fated transfer is truly eye-watering http://bit.ly/2DloD5P
Sadly there's been a rather sinister incident up at the Kirby Misperton fracking site this week. I'm sure the many stoic protestors who have been peacefully making their point in recent months will be disappointed in this. Harming animals is not ok.. https://t.co/MPkdFtfTAa
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".
