A ‘DESPERATE situation’ is being faced by clinical staff and patients in Thirsk after the revelation that the former Lambert Hospital is to be sold off, a local GP says. Long-serving GP Dr Richard Hiles says that the decision not to convert the hospital site into a health centre represents a significant lost opportunity for the future of healthcare in the town.
TWO pub chefs in the region have been nominated for a prestigious national award by their local MP. Kevin Hollinrake, MP for Thirsk and Malton, has nominated Anne-Marie Sargent of The Carlton Inn at Carlton Husthwaite and Oliver Farrar of the Durham Ox in Crayke for the 2017/18 Young Parliamentary Pub Chef of the Year award.
AN ACTION group has vowed to continue fighting against PGL’s plans to build a children’s activity centre in the heart of their village. Hambleton District Council’s planning committee granted permission for PGL to transform the former North Yorkshire Police headquarters at Newby Wiske Hall into an adventure holiday centre with in-house accommodation and outdoor activities.
It's a decision that won't please everyone - not least the 200-plus who objected to it - but councillors have today given the go ahead for a new PGL children's activity centre in North Yorkshire https://t.co/wD3JG7NZqP
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".
