A landowners’ group has written to councils across Norfolk urging tougher action on fly-tipping – a crime that blights the countryside and can cost thousands of pounds to clear up. The eastern branch of the Country Land and Business Association (CLA East) has put forward proposals for tougher punishment including making the seizure of vehicles a default penalty for fly-tipping as well as enforcing fines for home and business owners whose waste is found dumped illegally.
Norfolk County Council has spent almost £3m to acquire a 440-acre agricultural property for the County Farms estate – a move which councillors said underlines their commitment to the rural economy. The authority has bought Bank House Farm in Marshland St James, near King’s Lynn, which includes Grade 2 arable land and 1.28 acres of woodland, and expects it to “provide a strong return on investment”.
This poultry is good enough for royalty – and now the Norfolk farmer whose turkeys grace the Queen’s Christmas dinner table is celebrating another accolade after winning an industry award. Godwick Turkeys, based at Godwick Hall Farm near Fakenham, won the Field to Fork category at this week’s 2017 EDP Norfolk Food and Drink Awards.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
