ONE of Worcester's oldest pubs has been forced to close its doors today. Managers at the Old Greyhound, in New Street, told the Worcester News that landlord Marston's had ordered them to shut due to complaints about customers smoking in the seating area outside the pub, which is within Reindeer Court shopping centre. Old Greyhound staff said that customers had long been smoking in that area but the new managers at Reindeer Court had enforced a ban.
A DAD has raised almost £3,000 for a Worcester charity which cared for his daughter before she died of a brain tumour aged just 16. Chris Wilkinson, 52, from Uphampton, cycled the Ring of Kerry, a 112-mile ride in Southwest Ireland to raise funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice, n memory of his daughter Anna. She died in January last year, 18 months after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
BREASTFEEDING is the most natural thing in the world, but for many mums it's a struggle. That's why midwives from Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust are appealing for volunteers to help support women who are breastfeeding. Potential volunteers are invited to a meet-and-greet session on Thursday November 2 in the Charles Hastings Education Centre at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. Breastfeeding, where possible, can be the best option for new mums and their babies.
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".
