A SENIOR West Midlands Police murder detective says more and more police officers are contemplating suicide because of the strain placed on them by funding cuts. Veteran officer Detective Inspector Warren Hines told Sky News that police forces cannot cope with the workloads because they are not being properly funded - saying jobs are being assigned to ‘who is the least tearful that morning when they get to work’.
The Grenfell tower disaster has left Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid shaken and determined to ensure it doesn’t happen again. In a letter to MPs confirming that at least 11 council high rise tower blocks in the UK have the same cladding which accelerated the fire at Grenfell, he has also pledged to seek justice for those affected by the tragedy. Mr Javid, the Conservative MP for Bromsgrove, wrote: ““As a minister, I have always been prepared to make tough decisions.
Sprinkler systems are to be fitted in all 213 of Birmingham City Council's tower blocks - at a cost of £31 million - following the Grenfell Tower tragedy . The authority said it made the move in a bid to ensure there would be no tower block blaze of the scale seen in London. Bodies are still being recovered from the blackened hulk of the Kensington high-rise, where at least 79 people are dead, or presumed dead.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
