LEADING FIGURES behind the Northern Powerhouse vision have urged the Government to ensure Yorkshire’s cities are at the forefront of a £1.7bn drive to improve transport infrastructure and boost economic growth. Ministers have today announced initial details of the Transforming Cities fund to address weaknesses in city transport systems and spread prosperity by improving connectivity, reducing congestion and introducing new mobility services and technology.
A specialist anti-terror team in the UK has warned more needs to be done to tackle online extremism despite more than 300,000 videos, web pages and posts being removed after they were flagged up to internet firms. Figures released today show the national police unit reached the milestone in recent weeks, although the rate of removals prompted by its work has slowed as firms step up their own efforts.
No-one can be prepared for the sight that greets them as they arrive at the Mahama refugee camp. Turning the corner to the United Nations’ compound that sits above the sprawling site on Rwanda’s border with Tanzania, it is the size of the settlement that takes your breath away. It is vast, a network of rudimentary red-brick dwellings nestling together that stretches away as far as the eye can see.

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".
