A DIGITAL archive compiled by the Linen Hall Library on the Troubles and peace process has been officially launched. ‘Divided Society’ is a Heritage Lottery-funded project that saw the library’s Northern Ireland Political Collection catalogued digitally for ease of use.
PLANS for Fianna Fáil to contest elections in the north have taken another step forward with a North Belfast man having been elected to organise the junior wing of the party in the six counties. Paul McNamee, a trainee solicitor from the Antrim Road, joined the party while studying at Trinity College as he didn’t feel Sinn Féin or the SDLP fitted his politics. He was voted in as organiser by fellow northern members at a recent conference in Limerick and says he will work to build the party here.
Ireland’s first ever AIBA World Champion, grew up in West Belfast but now lives outside Glengormley with his partner and young daughter. This week he talks snakes, paper rounds, and hitting people for a living! Where were you born and where did you grow up? I was born and grew in on the Falls Road, West Belfast. I live outside Glengormley now, though. Where did you go to school? My primary school was St Gall’s, which is now gone. My secondary school was Corpus Christi College.
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".
