The Awesome Foundation Glasgow has announced the first recipient of its £500 prize - and it’s a project proving vital to the regeneration of an area in the east end. Braw Wee Traders has won the £500 prize to help their aim in regenerating the Barras and Calton through training and supporting local people. As reported on Glasgow Live, the Awesome Foundation is a worldwide project just kicking off in Glasgow, offering anyone looking to make the city ‘a more awesome place’ a £500 grant.
The latest round of roadworks at the Erskine Bridge takes place next weekend - and you might want to plan ahead if you’re travelling on Saturday night or Sunday morning. The busy road bridge will close southbound (towards Glasgow) overnight, from 10pm on Saturday, November 25 until 6am on Sunday, November 26. The closure is to allow Scotland TranServ to carry out essential lane marking.
Hands up who loves Christmas? We're right there with you. It's a magical time of year, when Glasgow sparkles that little bit brighter - not least because of the gorgeous lights surrounding us. The lights in George Square have officially been turned on earlier tonight - some of you love the new trees, others miss the swinging bells from their childhood. The absence of the square's festive ice rink has also dealt a blow to our Christmas spirit - but we're not out yet, Glasgow.
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".
