Theresa May has launched a year-long independent review into provision of tertiary education, which may lead to an overhaul of the tuition fees system. The long-awaited review represents the government’s attempt to address Labour’s electoral surge in university towns, including Cambridge, Bath and Canterbury, in the last election.
As a visual guide to the last forty years of British politics, Sir Malcolm Rifkind’s office is difficult to beat. The walls are punctuated with photos of past cabinets and, in the corner, sits his ministerial box. As one of five Ministers to remain in office throughout the 18 years of the Thatcher and Major administrations, serving as Defence Minister and Foreign Secretary under the latter, the photos are suitably numerous.
Members of the University have spoken out against Cambridge’s implementation of the government’s Prevent legislation, questioning the University’s commitment to “light touch” compliance. The comments follow an intervention made by the University administration in a panel discussion organised by the Palestine Society (PalSoc).
@thehistoryguy Eric offended her Court by sending an ambassador overly laden with gold; she wasn’t going to be bought! Also: she still had Dudley’s affections at that point. More interesting q. is: what if she married Anjou in 1580/81?
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".
