A Nottingham-born soldier who endured brutal captivity during the Korean War and was later awarded the George Cross for his bravery, has died at the age of 87 in the USA. Derek Kinne won his medal after being captured by the Chinese in 1951. His brother Raymond had already been killed in the conflict while serving with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
The initial vision for what would eventually be a highway called Maid Marian Way came almost as soon as the Second World War ended. In late 1945, the city council decided it needed a new road from the junction of Upper Parliament Street and Chapel Bar down to Canal Street to handle the ever-increasing volume of traffic passing through the centre of Nottingham. In November 1945, the city council decided to ask Parliament for the go ahead for a scheme likely to cost more than half a million pounds.
One of Nottinghamshire’s most popular museums is opening its doors early again this year – for the spring half-term holiday. Based in Thoresby Courtyard, the Queen’s Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum, which charts the military and social history of the county from the days of Oliver Cromwell right up to conflicts of the present day will open for three days later this month. The decision to open from February 21-23 follows the success of pilot schemes in 2016 and 2017.
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".
