ONCE more Cllr Eades is spouting off to the Echo regarding a subject about which he either knows very little, or is deliberately trying to stir up fear without any justification. He suggests that Bournemouth and Poole residents are likely to see Council Tax hikes of 10% or more in 2019 as we form a conurbation-wide Council.
‘THE MINISTER AND THE SHOWGIRL’, ‘TORY WHIP SHOCK’, ‘THE DISHONOURABLE MEMBER’, ‘TOE JOB TO NO JOB’... I could go on, but you get the picture. No wonder I became both fascinated with newspapers and suspicious of politicians growing up in the early nineties, for these were all headlines from the ill-fated reign of Conservative Prime Minister John Major. Sleaze, sleaze and more sleaze, pretty much every Sunday in the News of the World.
THE "vision" of Cllr Nick Rose concerning libraries is ridiculous. The facility he describes is not a library at all but some sort of community centre. Please leave our libraries alone.They have been interfered with enough already. A library is intended to be a peaceful place where people can seek the books they wish to read without distraction.
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".
