It could be argued that Manchester owes a huge debt to Blondie. It was the Big Apple trailblazers who first married the new wave attitude to disco, taking the spirit of NYC punk hang-out CBGBs and welding it to the exciting new dance sounds emerging from the city’s far more glamorous Studio 54 nightclub in the 1970s. It is a formula that later proved so successful for our own New Order, laying the groundwork for the Hacienda night club, Madchester and all that followed.
A number of years ago, Rossendale council’s scrutiny committee decided to make the issue of dog fouling a top priority. It’s one of those things which few people like to talk about, but which irritates folk like few other things. Rossendale council subsequently increased its spending on dog patrols to £44,000 a year, while Bacup was a particular target for council activity with glow in the dark signs and more poo bins.
A charity which supports more than 600 families has moved into bigger premises. Space4Autism has a new base on Mill Lane in Macclesfield. The group was set up in 2005 by a group of parents to provide much needed support for families struggling to cope with the lack of professional services. The new premises will house the 300-plus activities they now provide each year and the group is planning to add an autism friendly cafe, a retail area and a huge sensory room.
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".
