This week marks 35 years since the end of the Falklands War which killed or injured many Gwent servicemen. MARTIN WADE tells how the Argus covered the war in the South Atlantic. BEFORE the islands were invaded, tension in the South Atlantic was rising as Argentinian naval ships approached the islands. Scrap metal dealers from Argentina had landed illegally on South Georgia with a small group of soldiers. Amid this mounting tension, concern grew for a teenager from Bedwas who was on the Falklands.
A SPECIAL service of remembrance was held today at the Senedd to mark the anniversary of the end of the Falklands War. Today marks 35 years since Argentinian forces surrendered at Port Stanley, ending the conflict. The ceremony paid tribute to those who served in the Falklands War, which claimed the lives of 255 service personnel and injured a further 775. Of the deaths 48 were serving Welsh Guardsmen.
A new book about a famous Gwent company shines a light on the rise and fall of two great industries of Wales, iron and coal. MARTIN WADE talks to Leslie Shore, the author of The Tredegar Company. COAL could be said to be in Leslie Shore’s blood. Aged 67, he was born and raised in New Tredegar in the Rhymney valley. During the first two decades of his life, the town had as its centre a busy Elliot Colliery.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
