Concerning the process of setting Falmouth’s annual budget, as reported last week, and the agonies of raising it by between £6 - £12.81 a year so they can support some additional projects. I’ve got an idea of where to raise loads of money: make student houses liable for Council Tax – but not the students themselves (they pay more than enough already) – charge the landlords direct.
TWO charities from Mabe and Penryn are celebrating Christmas early this week after being awarded over £8,000 between them by the Packet's parent company Newsquest. Mabe Youth and Community Project (MYCP) has been awarded £7,000 to replace the failing boiler system in the community hall while St Gluvias Community Hall in St Thomas Street, Penryn has been given £1,340 to install lighting along its brand new step free path from the car park.
VOLUNTEERS and community leaders have united in Penzance to reduce the collective plastic footprint of the town to achieve Plastic Free status. After successfully completing the Five Objective Guidelines in the SAS Plastic Free Coastlines (PFC) toolkit, Penzance has become the first location to meet the criteria to be awarded this prestigious recognition in the fight against single use plastics.
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".
