MOBILE libraries will no longer visit Buckhurst Hill as the county council moves to shake up the service with volunteer led centres. According to a revised timetable to be voted on by Essex County councillors on Tuesday (January 23), the fortnightly Friday stops the mobile library currently makes in three Buckhurst Hill locations will be cut. Limes Farm in Chigwell will also be passed and stops in Epping reduced from three to one, in a move that could save the council £174,000 a year.
THE much loved Waltham Abbey Pancake Race is back for its eighth year. Since the turn of the decade teams of work colleagues, friends and families have been looking to batter each other in a flat-cake flipping dash along Sun Street. On the morning of February 13 a variety of different groups will meet outside the library. At 10.30am the day will kick off with businesses from the town, with the under fives at 11am, primary school pupils at 11.30am and parents and carers at noon.
A TOWN council has added £10,000 to its war chest as it ratchets up the fight to save beloved green spaces. At a meeting last night (January 17), Loughton Town Council voted unanimously to add an extra £10,000 to its reserves as the deadline for Local Plan submissions looms. By January 29, all challenges to Epping Forest District Council’s wide ranging plan, which could see 11,000 homes built across the area by 2033, must be submitted.
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".
