Dozens of unaccompanied children in Greece have been left in limbo for more than a year after they were expected to be admitted to the UK as part of the British government’s commitment to rescue Europe’s most vulnerable young refugees. The group of up to 60 children were expected to come to the UK under a scheme, created by the Labour peer Alf Dubs, that was intended to bring around 3,000 child refugees into the country.
When Dave Ireson, 57, realised he would be hit by extra payments for the new spare room subsidy of around £20 a week, he decided, after 30 years, it was time to move out of his family home. Since he lost his building job two years ago, the £80 weekly rent on the old three-bedroom house was being paid in full by the state.
Melanie Phelan, a local community activist from northern Kensington, said she had also asked the inquiry’s officials in the Connaught Rooms whether Moore-Bick could not come back to answer questions from relatives and survivors “because of the strength of feeling in the room” for him to return. She was told that, as had been announced beforehand, Moore-Bick would not be taking any questions. Phelan said: “They don’t seem to be be very empathetic or even listening.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
