The judging has taken place for the Stars of Suffolk 2017 – and there is now little over two weeks before this year’s winners are revealed. A panel of judges gathered at Hintlesham Hall Hotel yesterday to sift through scores of nominations for the 13 different categories. These range from outstanding bravery to volunteer of the year – and each one was packed with inspirational nominations.
Brad Jones has been appointed editor of the East Anglian Daily Times, only the ninth editor in its 143-year history. For someone born and bred in Suffolk, it’s a proud and exciting day for me as I take charge of the East Anglian Daily Times. I’m only the ninth EADT editor in its 143-year history, following in the footsteps of Sir Frederick Wilson, Bertrand Ellington, Ralph Wilson, Don Simpson, Rod Kiddell, Ken Rice, Malcolm Pheby and Terry Hunt.
The Pigs Gone Wild art trail in Ipswich was a huge success in the summer of 2016 – and now details of the follow-up are finally set to be announced. The official “reveal” for the follow-up event – again a collaboration between St Elizabeth Hospice and Wild in Art – will take place next Wednesday evening in Ipswich. Exactly what the sculptures will be remains a closely guarded secret, but project manager Norman Lloyd, who also led Pigs Gone Wild, thinks people will love them.
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".
