Walkers are having to cope with traffic diversions during the festive period after a bridge over the River Ribble was declared unsafe. Last month Lancashire County Council were forced to close West Bradford Bridge, between West Bradford and Pimlico, to motorists after a crash badly damaged the bridge. However, they have now had to close it to pedestrians to make room for the scaffolding and for the necessary repairs to be carried out.
The generosity of people in Clitheroe is evident as lots of toys continue to be donated towards the annual toy appeal. Launched by The Clitheroe Advertiser and the Ribble Valley branch of the Salvation Army, the appeal aims to ensure several hundred disadvantaged youngsters across the borough get a present this Christmas. Capt. Elizabeth Smith said: “Thank you to all who have given gifts and donations. We are grateful for every one.
Developers are soon to start work to build a crematorium, funeral chapel and car park on a Ribble Valley Remembrance Park, which is the final resting place of 995 Calderstones Hospital patients. All Faiths Remembrance Parks Ltd purchased the cemetery after many years of neglect since the cemetery was first sold. Work has taken place to cut back some of the overgrown areas, no excavation of graves has taken place.
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".
