Pickle ball could find itself sandwiched into the city’s new proposed multiplex. A private developer hopes to make it so, William Elliott explained to council at the Sept. 5 committee of the whole meeting. What is pickle ball? It’s a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, ping-pong and tennis. The ball is larger than a tennis ball, and is perforated (usually 26 times) so as to maintain slower speeds during flight.
Six hundred people attended the Open Cockpits Evening at RAF Cosford on Friday and Saturday evenings, and were eager to get inside the Wolverhampton-built Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1. The popular bi-annual event gives aircraft enthusiasts to chance to sit in the cockpit of some of the most exciting planes in the world. The Boulton Defiant joined the aircraft display at Cosford just a few months ago and is the last surviving example of its kind, built at a factory in Wolverhampton in 1938.
Choosing a suitable location for the city’s proposed multi-use recreational facility is proving a difficult task. After the Monday, Sept. 11 council meeting, councillors were divided on the issue. Having Councillor Candace Martin at the table would have helped to split the vote, as three councillors were in favour of one location and three others preferred another. Council’s discussion focused primarily on two locations for the proposed multiplex.
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".
