There are at least 13,000 victims of modern slavery living in Britain's towns and cities, it is estimated. But many argue that the number is probably much higher. Those who escape or are discovered often recover physically but suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or anxiety attacks. They are terrified of the police, and for some their sense of trust has been so eroded that they are even afraid to engage with charities.
The government should invest more than £3bn to create 850,000 jobs in the Northern Powerhouse, a new report has claimed. In its Powerhouse 2050 report, the Northern Powerhouse Partnership suggests investing in schemes including portable nuclear reactors and a hydrogen gas network. The partnership, made up of businesses and organisations, launched in 2016. Theresa May said she was "absolutely committed" to the Northern Powerhouse.
One hundred days into the job, there is one thing Andy Burnham is sure of - a metro mayor can have more impact on the North than an MP. "I am totally convinced it is the right move. I was frustrated with Westminster and its London-centric, dysfunctional thinking," he says. "If they can ignore us, they do." But is it not better to change a system from within, rather than give up on Parliament? "I tried. I really did, but I decided it wasn't where I can make a difference," he replies. "Here I can.
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".
