COUNCILLORS have issued a warning about youngsters putting themselves in danger by skating in a town centre. Councillor Shirley Dobbin urged the children to be more careful at an Upton Town Council meeting on Tuesday. One resident claims the kids have been causing ‘havoc’ across the town and urged parents and teachers to take action to stamp out the behaviour. Cllr Dobbin said: “Children are skating down the street. On and off the pavements. Someone will be hurt.
A SHOCKED resident has shared this picture of drug needles and wrappers dumped in a city car park. Jack Stanley found the paraphernalia in St Martin's Gate car park, in Worcester. He feared that children might get their hands on the items and phoned the police to ensure they were removed. Mr Stanley, of Malvern, said: "I rang 101 to let them know and they replied I will have to call the council in the morning as it's not their problem.
WARDENS have not fined a single dog walker for failing to carry a poo bag in the first six months since it became an offence. Malvern Hills District Council introduced a Public Space Protection Order in June last year to try and stamp out dog fouling. The law also meant wardens could fine a walker if their dog was off the lead in certain areas or if it entered an enclosed playground.
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".
