It's a familiar site to commuters on the Birmingham to Leicester railway line - a rusted steam train sitting idly in a field in Blaby. The 1929 locomotive on Leicester Road is an oddity, particularly given the landscape and its distance from any active railways, however its story is one which is comparatively recent. The train appeared in 2008 and was the brainchild of farmer, Peter Thomas.
As a longtime resident and current mayoral candidate, I’ve heard from hundreds of borough residents and business owners who feel unheard, ignored, disrespected or simply uninformed. Community members report yearning to know more about local issues, borough action, policies and overall community happenings. While elected officials and borough staff have worked steadily on budget and ordinances, progress has been uneven and inconsistent amid the rapid growth affecting our community.
Samurai Riot has been released on Steam, we took a stab (sorry) at the latest release from Wako Factory. Taking place in Japan during the feudal era Samurai Riot combines button bashing kick and slash action with a beautiful graphical quality which sets the game apart from others of the same genre. I will say this now, I really enjoyed this game and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a nostalgic kick (I’ll try not to do many more of these terrible puns!)
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".
