Everyone has an opinion on the flood of sexual harassment allegations of recent weeks. The constant flow of revelations, first in show business then in politics, have played perfectly to the 24-hour news agenda (who’s next?) and commentators have weighed in from every angle.
"The tone of living in America is changing, and, in order to stop being scared, we started organising. I, a transgender Jew, don’t have a problem with violence against fascists.”Neil Lawrence, a third-year linguistics student at the University of California, Berkeley, may or may not be typical of the protesters who, one evening in February, shut down a planned talk by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos on the campus renowned as the spiritual home of free speech.
“The delusion that there are thousands of young people about who are capable of benefiting from university training, but have somehow failed to find their way there, is a necessary component of the expansionist case. More will mean worse.”So said Kingsley Amis in 1960, at a time when just 5 per cent of the UK population went to university. On one level, Amis was right: there weren’t thousands of capable young people missing out – there were hundreds of thousands.
Bureaucratic burden from OfS will be less, in long-run, from current arrangements, says @MichaelBarber9. Will rely on data - data is not bureaucracy, it's a way of liberating universities. #UniEducation
OfS is piling regulation on regulation, says David Maguire. How does this chime with pledges on autonomy? "I don't deny there's some additional bureaucracy with moving from where we are to where we'll be after transition to OfS," says @MichaelBarber9.
@MichaelBarber9 says he "strongly agrees" about primacy of university autonomy. But "that freedom doesn't mean you can take these decisions completely ignoring public opinion. Risk is we could generate populist backlash that does enormous damage".
"Some v-c pay looks very high, even egregious. But I'm worried that the solution could be worse than the problem," says Willetts. "It wouldn't be in anyone's interests for regulator to decide individuals' pay". #UniEducation
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".
