COUNCILLORS are calling for ‘outdated’ Peebles High to be brought to the front of the queue for replacement. On Tuesday members of the local authority’s ruling executive will plan for the future of its secondary school estate. Eyemouth, Kelso, Berwickshire and Earlston have all received new high schools over the past decade, with Jedburgh under way. Now elected members in Tweeddale are pushing the case for Peebles to be next.
“LAUGHTER is definitely the best medicine”, says Tweeddale GP and comedian Joan Scott. The droll doc from West Linton Medical Practice is preparing to host an evening of comedy at Peebles Rugby Club tomorrow (Saturday). Joan, who performs under her stage name Jeannie Jones, will introduce globetrotting headliner Nik Coppin, as well as giving the audience a taste of her own work. She told us: “Comedy is something I have always been interested in. “I suppose it was always on my bucket list.
SATURDAY’S trip to Selkirk brought back some fond memories for East Kilbride manager Billy Stark. Not only was he happy to see his side pick up all three points, but it got him reminiscing about his last visit to the town. The Royal Burgh was where it all began for the former Celtic star, as he was handed his first St Mirren contract, by none other than Sir Alex Ferguson. The legendary manager signed the young midfielder in July 1975 following an impressive trial against the Souters.
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".
