Bury St Edmunds was awash with flags and bunting at the weekend as the town paid its own special tribute to the original patron saint of England. St Edmund’s Day was celebrated by shops, businesses and traders, and a town crier even delivered his own rousing proclamation to Saint Edmund, who was King of East Anglia during the ninth century. St Edmund’s Day officially falls today, but a series of events were held over the weekend to honour England’s original patron saint.
Specialist officers searching a landfill for missing RAF airman Corrie McKeague have still not found any rubbish dated from when the 23-year-old went missing – nearly a month into the restarted hunt. The fresh search for Corrie at the landfill site in Milton, Cambridgeshire, resumed on October 23, with officers concentrating on an area of cell 22, which was close to the location of the original 20-week hunt.
Volunteers are being urged to get involved with a project which will bring the history of the Guildhall in Bury St Edmunds to life. The Guildhall, in Guildhall Street, is Britain’s oldest continually used civic building with a history that spans more than 800 years. Following a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the historic building will open next year as an immersive heritage centre and events attraction, which can be enjoyed by a wide cross-section of the community.
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".
