Around £24m will be given over the next three years to tackle problems in the sector. The authority - along with the majority of councils in England - raised council tax by 4.99 per cent with over half of this being ring-fenced to help pay for care costs in the city. Coun Cate McDonald, the member responsible for health on the council, welcomed the funding boost but said it 'does not compensate' for 'years of budget cuts'.
The ability of fire crews to respond promptly and professionally to life threatening tower block fires is 'a postcode lottery', according to new research from the Fire Brigades Union. Figures show that South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue has just two appliances with aerial ladder platforms to tackle fires breaking out in high-rise flats across the county. The statistics were published in wake of the Grenfell tower fire in Kensington London which killed over 100 people.
NHS teams in Sheffield are said to be leading the way by eliminating a highly-controversial technique used to restrain mental health patients. The method is often used to restrain a patient with challenging behaviour - two members of staff lock their arms and legs before pinning them face-down to the floor. Campaigners have long called for the practice to be banned which is said to increase distress and cause injury to patients on wards.
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".
