A NOTORIOUS floodplain that has caused misery for homeowners living along the banks of a beck should now be a thing of the past following a £3m investment. Around 162 homes are set to benefit from the first phase of an Environment Agency project designed to protect against a severe ‘once in 75 year’ storm in Stockton.
UNION representatives have been barred from a meeting to discuss the fate of professors at Teesside University. The university is facing mounting anger over contentious plans to make 27 research professors reapply for their jobs. In what has been called a bizarre and strange performance audit, the academics would have to justify their research and any funding bids. According to the plans, those who do not take part will be offered a severance package of nine months’ salary to leave.
THE sands of time are running out for seaside sculptures ordered to be torn down by the same council that paid £10,000 to have them installed. Members of a community group were warned by Redcar’s council that they could face a £700 bill if they don’t remove a series of elaborate sculptures that cost £35,000 to create. A tribute to Manchester bombing victims, a detailed castle and a Romeo and Juliet themed piece are among six sculptures currently standing close to Redcar’s boating lake.
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".
