I am relatively new to my school setting and, like every new staff member, I wanted to get to know the children a little better. So when our executive headteacher forwarded us an email about a research project called "Drawing the Future", I saw it as a perfect opportunity to get a real insight into the children I would be teaching. Drawing the Future gets children thinking about what they want to be when they’re older.
SHE’s been presenting BBC Look North for an incredible 20 years this month but Carol Malia still feels privileged to be welcomed into homes across North-East and Cumbria to deliver the region’s evening news. Whether you are switching on after work to catch up on the day’s events or you’re settling down for a night in front of the tv, her warm voice and genuine manner have proved a winning combination for the broadcaster in a fickle world of ever-changing media technology.
VISITORS can help create a unique piece of art to highlight the ‘criminalisation’ of women in the workplace and social media with celebrated textiles student Rachel Fraser. She will be at the Designer Makers Market at The Witham in Barnard Castle this Easter weekend inviting people to help with her new project exploring the issue of what it means to be a woman in today’s society and why she thinks they are wrongly criminalised.
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".
