A dementia roadshow will retrace its steps for another visit to Lowestoft. Anyone who missed last month’s opportunity to speak to representatives from Alzheimer’s Society and pick up information will have another chance on Tuesday, October 31. The event aims to increase awareness and understanding of the condition which affects more than 11,700 people across Suffolk, with the Alzheimer’s Society roadshow parking up in the Co-op car park in Ashburnham Way, Lowestoft, between 10am and 4pm.
A woman was treated for severe hypothermia by coastguard volunteers after entering the sea at Pakefield. HM Coastguard Lowestoft and Southwold were called to the beach just after 9am this morning, adjacent to the Jolly Sailors, following reports a woman had entered the water and was in distress. On arrival at the scene, the team located the casualty after she had drifted a distance down the beach and drifted to shore.
Just over a year after launching a campaign to repair their leaking roof, the team at Pakefield’s Seagull Theatre are over the moon with the generous support they have received and are already starting work to rejuvenate the venue. The Raise the Roof campaign was launched in August last year to raise £40,000 to repair collapsing parts of the ceiling and replace the boarded-up windows.
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".
