The University of Surrey is considering building extra student accommodation - a plan potentially linked to Guildford Council's proposed £81 million investment in student housing. The university has been building new student accommodation at its Manor Park campus since 2005 and is constructing its second phase of around 1,100 rooms, due for completion in 2019.
The decision to allow the 10-storey Solum development has some Guildford residents worried about the height of new buildings in the town. Julian Lyon, chairman of the Guildford Society , said: "The Planning Inspectorate, in allowing Solum's appeal, has imposed a landscape and skyscape-changing development. "The battle is on between going up, or stretching out".
Shoppers in Guildford will soon be able to treat themselves to a glass of prosecco while they browse the shelves - thanks to a van. Surrey resident Amie Sparrow is bringing her prosecco van Popped Truck Ltd to House of Fraser in Guildford's High Street from March 3. As well as Prosecco, shoppers will be able to sample cocktails, including an English Garden (gin, elderflower and prosecco), Sorrento Sparkle (limoncello and prosecco) and Prosecco Royale (crème de cassis and prosecco).
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".
