The mother of a severely autistic teenager is hoping to take him to America on a trip she says is giving him a focus and could save his life. Jake Matrix, 17, of Newark, was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) when he was three and Asperger’s two years later. His mother, Louise Clark, said she knew something was wrong when he was born. “He was always crying and was unhappy,” she said.
A village pub that has been closed for 18 months could be re-opened as a community pub offering a range of facilities. Residents packed Collingham Memorial Hall on Wednesday last week to hear ideas that could lead to the creation of the Royal Oak Community Pub in the village. At the end all but three of the people at the meeting voted in support of the idea progressing. A steering group of villagers has been set up to get the idea under way.
Organisers of the annual Winter Ball in aid of Beaumond House Community Hospice are urging people to support this year’s event. Last year’s ball marked the start of the 30th anniversary of celebrations of hospice care in Newark and surrounding areas and was attended by 350 guests who raised £38,000. Fundraising and events officer Holly Fowler said so far this year ticket sales were much slower, with 158 sold so far.
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".
