The Mayor of Boston Coun Brian Rush, his deputy Coun Barrie Pierpoint and two other councillors have announced a new ‘independent group’ on the council. Councillors Rush and Pierpoint are joined by former UKIP member Anton Dani, who will take the role of leader, and unaligned coun Stephen Ball on the Bostonian Independents Group (BiG).
Boston has reacted the most negatively to street light changes in Lincolnshire, county councillors are set to be told at a meeting next Thursday. Although, 74 per cent of the 5,305 people county-wide who responded to a Lincolnshire County Council survey gathering opinion on the change said they felt a negative or extremely negative impact on their lives and area, this rose to 83.9 per cent in the Boston district.
“I’m the Mayor and no-one has told me any different, I will be the Mayor of Boston until someone tells me otherwise,” Coun Brian Rush has told The Standard this morning (Tuesday), after councillors last night called on him to step down from the role.
We asked you responded, here's a gallery of what you said were some of the worst potholes in the Boston area, we couldn't get to all but picked some of those named most often. It followed news that @LincsCC had received £1.7m to help with 30,000 potholes. https://trib.al/nIcZzexhttps://t.co/Pr92oS6ztQ
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".
