A St Helens academy has been included on a list of schools criticised for failing to receive a good Ofsted report over the past decade. The new chief inspector of Ofsted has criticised 135 schools nationwide which have consistently received failing reports from the education watchdog. But Sutton Academy’s principal Alison Sherman has hit back at the criticism, pointing out that the academy only opened seven years ago.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has confirmed there is insufficient evidence to charges anyone over the death of Ryan Lamb. The 20-year-old died of a single stab wound following a fracas in a takeaway in St Helens town centre. Ryan, from Sutton, had been enjoying a Sunday afternoon out with pals when he was killed. Three people were arrested in connection with his death but have never been charged.
A former spiritual retreat in St Helens has been bought by the property developer and hotelier Lawrence Kenwright. It is believed Mr Kenwright wants to transform Loyola Hall in Rainhill into a wedding venue and hotel. The hall was used by the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) as a spiritual retreat. They vacated the hall in 2014 and was then used by Camelot for residential use by people who agree to act as guardians of the property.
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".
