Brownies and girl guides in Hartlepool spoke to units all over the world when they took to the airwaves for a special event. Around 30 youngsters aged from seven to 14 took part in Girlguiding Hartlepool’sThinking Day on the Air on Saturday. Held at the Tees Valley North Scout Centre, in Brierton Lane, they used HAM radios to speak to fellow guides in Australia, America and Ireland. They also learned Morse code, how to cracked secret code and learned how to communicate using flags.
Hartlepool council chiefs are to be awarded just over £200,000 from the Government to support a new housing scheme. The council successfully applied for a share of the £45m Land Release Fund set up to help kick-start house building projects up and down the country. It is to support local councils to meet their ambition to unlock land they own for at least 160,000 homes by 2020. The money will be used to combat barriers which would otherwise make land unusable for development.
Councillors expressed their disappointment after hearing how crime in Hartlepool increased by 23%. Latest crime figures for last October to December showed burglary and vehicle crime had doubled compared to the same period in 2016. The overall rise equated to an extra 510 crimes reported to police. The figures were discussed by Hartlepool Borough Council’s Audit and Governance Committee. Councillor Ray Martin-Wells, chair of the committee, said: “We are disappointed with the increases.
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".
