Tributes have been paid to a former Sheffield councillor, volunteer, businesswoman and dressmaker who died suddenly last week. Sheila Constance served on Sheffield City Council from 2012-2016, and was also chair of Ecclesfield Parish Council. She also volunteered and campaigned for a wide range of organisations and ran a sewing and alterations business in High Green where she taught dozens of students the art of dressmaking.
The young political leaders of tomorrow took part in discussions on issues including school uniform, mobiles phones and sugary snacks, before voting as a group. The event had been organised by Sheffield City Council to allow the children to get a taste of politics and practice their debating skills. And the children were praised not only for the quality of their arguments but also their behaviour - which was said to be an improvement on some sessions of the full council.
From an early age it was clear what a caring person she was - and she enjoyed spending time with her family and many close friends throughout her life. Drama was a great love of hers which she continued with throughout her education. She attended Ridgeway Primary School and Eckington High School and was always the star of the school plays. In those first few years there was no indication of the problems she would struggle with later in life.
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".
