Nearly 70 anti-terror police officers will be lost in the West Midlands. The warning has been sounded by the region's police boss amid cuts to funding from the Home Office. Funding for counter-terrorism policing, which currently comes to £700 million a year, is set to be slashed by 7.2% in the next three years. The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson, said: "I'm very concerned.
Labour will need “at least” two terms in office to rebuild Britain, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has predicted. A full term of office would usually last four to five years. And he said Labour needed a large majority in the House of Commons in order to carry out its programme. Speaking to West Midlands Labour activists, Mr McDonnell said the party needed not only to win votes but also “hearts and minds” to ensure it enjoyed a long period in power.
Labour MPs have given up attempts to sack Jeremy Corbyn as leader, creating the impression that the party’s civil wars may be over. But battles taking place at the party conference show that Labour is still far from united. Factions including Labour First and Progress are waging war against Momentum, the left-wing organisation which grew out of Mr Corbyn’s leadership campaign.
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".
