Occupants of new-build properties in Newark and Sherwood could soon have smaller wheeled bins for household waste. The district council’s leisure and environment committee is recommending that bin size for new properties be determined by the number of occupants. The suggestion — still to be approved by full council — is that a home with two residents would be issued with a 140-litre bin; three to five residents a 240-litre bin; and six to eight, a 360-litre bin.
Police are dealing with a crash on the A17 involving two lorries, one of which has spilled its load. The crash was reported at 5.30am this morning and the road has been closed between Coddington and Beckingham. There is no indication as to when it will re-open. Police from Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire attended as the incident is on the county border. Highways officers are now on the scene assisting with the clear up of the spilled load.
The railway line connecting Newark to Nottingham is set for a £16.8m upgrade. The cash injection is part of a multi-billion pound scheme to renew lines around the country contained in a five-year plan that covers 2019 to 2024. The upgrade is part of Network Rail’s ‘Control Period 6’, or ‘CP6’ plan, totalling a £5.3bn spend in that period. Network Rail told the Advertiser that the money would be spent on maintenance and renewal on the line, which runs through Newark Castle station.
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".
