Traffic wardens are set to be back on the streets of Monklands by summer after North Lanarkshire’s new parking plans received Scottish Government approval. It will see mobile teams patrol town centres to enforce yellow-line restrictions such as prohibited parking and waiting and loading periods, plus cracking down on misuse of disabled bays and overstaying maximum time limits.
Sprinkler systems are set to be fitted to every tower block across Airdrie and Coatbridge in a £10million move to minimise fire risk. North Lanarkshire Council has made the proposal following discussions with the fire service and structural surveys; with work anticipated to begin “as soon as practical” later this year. Assistant chief executive Des Murray said: “Minimising risk in our 48 tower blocks is our absolute priority.
Coatbridge residents battling against dangerous and inconsiderate parking in their increasingly congested area have earned a victory as councillors backed their calls for action to be taken. Nearly 200 people signed a petition asking North Lanarkshire Council to place yellow lines on corners of roads including Dunbeth Avenue and Kildonan, Portland, Laird, Eglinton and Park Streets to deter inconsiderate parking, including by visitors to nearby New College Lanarkshire.
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".
