THE hard work of green-fingered city volunteers will soon bear fruit in the name of a legendary Portsmouth author. It comes as scores of residents united to plant 50 trees along the Charles Dickens Trail – a walk comprising 15 landmarks which played a significant role in the 19th century writer’s life. The path starts at the the Birthplace Museum in Old Commercial Road, Landport, and includes his former parish at St Mary’s Church in Fratton.
PORTSMOUTH has been turned into a picture of winter after snow descended on the city throughout the night. Families, dog-walkers and keen photographers have all taken to their nearest open spaces to enjoy the conditions – which have caused disruption in some parts of Hampshire. The cold snap has led to public safety warnings from county police and fire crews, who have been out diffusing weather-related incidents over the weekend.
Have your sayA LORRY jack-knifed as it travelled along one of the county’s busiest roads this morning. Police were called to the incident at J6 on the M3 northbound just after 5am – which blocked lanes one and two as drivers tackled the snow. Officers issued a warning a cordoned off the scene with cones while the vehicle was re-aligned. A spokesperson for Hampshire Roads Policing said on Twitter at 5.20am: ‘We are dealing with a jack-knifed Lorry on the #M3 northbound J6. It’s blocking lane 1 & 2.
@jen_gupta - along with others at the university, no doubt. No women appeared on the UoP press release after the first three years of data was released, either. Apologies for any misunderstanding, no gender politics intended here, the piece just references who we were shown by UoP.
@jen_gupta Hi Jen, I wrote this. The online headline has been altered in hindsight. When I visited UoP for a piece on the survey, the two interviewees I was introduced were men. I was only told after the article went to print, you had also contributed to the survey - (1/2)
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".
