The NHS has scrapped plans to limit reconstructive surgery to women who have survived breast cancer. The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – the body which decides which services are available to patients on the NHS – had looked to tighten its rules on reconstructive surgery provision for breast cancer sufferers. But public objection has prompted health bosses to reverse the proposal, which many described as unfairly targeting women.
The Bristol Pound is an ineffective way of keeping wealth in the city because it is failing to boost local spending or production, say academics. Produced by economists Adam Marshall and Daniel O’Neill, of Manchester Metropolitan University, a study of the currency assessed whether the Bristol Pound increased local wealth by keeping money within the city.
The preferred plan for Bristol’s largest housing development in a generation has now gone on display. Situated on two sites, the Hengrove Park and Hartcliffe Campus development will see up to 2,000 one, two, three and four bed flats and home built over the coming years. Talks about developing the area – which used to house Whitchurch Airport – have been rumbling on for decades.
@TristanCorkPost@stillawake I have been told they will be producing completely neutral copy for the wire and we are simply hosting them. As far as I can see the scheme is set to benefit everyone equally and improve overall coverage.
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".
