The event, which celebrates business success stories, was held at St Wulfram’s Church last night (Friday). A Champagne reception, four-course dinner, awards presentation and disco were enjoyed by 350 people in the church, which had been transformed for the evening into a glittering venue fit for such a prestigious event. Congratulations to all our winners and finalists – find out who won which award here. ** Pick up Friday’s Journal for a 24-page supplement featuring coverage from the event.
The national Royal British Legion (RBL) organisation is being criticised by a local branch for stonewalling its attempts to secure land for community use. The Barrowby branch of the RBL – believed to be one of the oldest in the country – says it is being blocked by the national organisation as it attempts to work with Barrowby Parish Council to buy the land on which its clubhouse stood until this week.
Fresh plans for the approach from St Peter’s Hill to Grantham’s yet-to-be-built multiplex cinema have been revealed exclusively to the Journal by the district council. Previous proposals included the knocking down of the civic suite – which is home to the council chamber – to create a ‘pedestrian gateway’ to the complex in St Catherine’s Road, but this has been scrapped after being deemed neither “sensible nor cost-effective”.
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".
