Ciaran Martin, the head of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), has suggested that an assault that would cripple Britain's electricity grid is probably now inevitable. His warning comes just a day after General Sir Nick Carter urged the UK to prepare for Russian hostilities. Ciaran Martin warned today that a major cyber attack on the UK is now a matter of “when, not if”.
An Institution of Mechanical Engineers report entitled 'A Breath of Fresh Air: New Solutions to Reduce Transport Emissions' calls for new national scheme for measuring UK emissions. Engineers concerned about transport emissions want policymakers to spearhead a rollout of new monitoring equipment across swathes of streets, stations, ports and airports to gather the best data on UK pollution and precisely target mitigation efforts at the worst offenders.
David Erdos, deputy director of the Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law, reports disturbing results served up by the Google search engine’s auto-filler algorithms. Google has been promoting hate speech and incitement to violence via its autocomplete search service, internet law expert Erdos claims.
People say today's Brexit thing's a fudge like that's a bad thing, but democracies tend to produce fudge. The Good Friday Agreement's a fudge. The UK is constitutionally a fudge. The EU is one big post-war fudge. Personally, I can live with more fudge #fudgehttps://t.co/3JhlAvfYfr
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".
