Every year without fail during my childhood, family holidays were spent in a different part of Cornwall enjoying the spectacular scenery and unpredictable British weather. We didn’t need exotic holidays because Cornwall had it all - swimming pools, beaches and as many hot pasties as we could get through. It almost felt luxurious when I was told we were upgrading from our trusty well used family tent to a special caravan that never moved on the holiday site.
The provider of Devon’s NHS 111 service is to remain in special measures - because it is still failing to improve care in neighbouring Somerset. Vocare took over Devon’s 111 service 18 months ago, after it was transferred from South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) to Devon Doctors.
Giving birth for the third time did not quite go to plan for a 21-year-old mum when she went into labour early and was sent to a hospital two hours away. Ellie Reid, 21, was at her home in St Austell, Cornwall, with her partner in August 2017 when she started experiencing contraction-like pains when she was only 32 weeks pregnant. She rang the Treliske hospital and went into the delivery suite - but was sent out of the county due to a lack of neonatal beds.
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".
