AN AMBITIOUS new plan to revamp Newport city centre and build on recent developments has been unveiled. Newport City Council’s fifth City Summit was held at the Celtic Manor Resort earlier today, where the authority revealed its new city centre masterplan. The plan splits the city centre into three main areas each containing a number of important key sites, setting out developments and improvements which will be carried out between the next three and eight years.
THE cost of the planned M4 relief road, now predicted as up to £1.4 billion, will increase further once VAT is taken into account, a Welsh Government official has confirmed. Last month it was revealed the cost of the so-called black route, which involves a new stretch of motorway running south of Newport, had increased by about 10 per cent to around £1.3 billion after a number of concessions to the Association of British Ports, which runs Newport Docks, pushed its price tag up by £136 million.
PLANNING guidelines around flooding which led to plans for a new hotel and spa in Monmouth to be thrown out are "stifling economic opportunities across Wales", AM Nick Ramsay has said. The Welsh Government blocked the proposal for the new facility in Hadnock Road last month after a report said the site was at risk of flooding once every 100 years.
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".
