The first New Internationalist magazine rolled off the presses in 1973. Put together with a tin of Cow gum and Letraset, and priced 25p, it featured an interview with Kenneth Kaunda, the first president of independent Zambia. The 1970s was a time of optimism: more African states had gained independence, idealistic leaders were demanding change, UK living standards were rising. A new global economic order was seen as right and just, even by the political establishment.
‘It’s been a long, long journey,’ reflects Aisha Seriki during her first week at SOAS University in London. She was among the first cohort take up a Sanctuary Scholarship, a radical scheme to support those who would otherwise be excluded from higher education by tough immigration rules. Originally from Nigeria, Seriki has lived in Britain since the age of eight. She attended primary and secondary school here, got high grades at A-level and secured a place at SOAS.
The state of education: leaving many behindWe are educating more people than ever. But despite huge gains the most marginalized – the poorest, children with disabilities, girls, and those from cultural or linguistic minorities – are still disproportionately left behind. The Millennium Development Goals (2000-15) to end world poverty included two important education targets – universal primary education and equal enrolment for girls and boys (‘gender parity’).
@PerneInAGyre@NewYorker I don't know how you jumped from restaurants to Yemen (that's all else I could see you had written on on the site) but either way you did an amazing job with it. Feel I understand the conflict better than any other complex explanation I've read...
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".
