What can the NHS afford? Every week one pressure group after another protests at rationed treatments, as the NHS suffers its greatest funding shortfall since it was founded. Today, it's Breast Cancer Now - and its case is exceptional.
For a brief, wonderful moment it looked as if Labour might not manage to hold a conference at all this year, having failed to find a private security firm. That would have been the ultimate symbol of the party's near-terminal meltdown.
Post Office staff are on strike today, protesting at the rolling closure of Crown post offices. Some 60 are scheduled to go now, with many more expected to follow. More than 2,000 experienced counter staff will go too.
Good morning, No doubt you are still reeling about a much-loved, if old-fashioned, fixture of national life dramatically quitting one of our great institutions, but I'm sure Great British Bake-Off will be just as good on Channel 4. Oh, and a backbencher called David Cameron also resigned yesterday.
Remember the sheer relief when Theresa May was catapulted into No 10. The country breathed a great "Phew!" Thank God it's not a sociopath, an eye-swivelling "no experts" obsessive or an inexperienced dimwit. We had escaped the terrifying prospect of extreme Brexiteers whose breathtaking Trump-class lies had swung the referendum.
I was right there in 1966. Was it bliss, very heaven to be young? To be honest, I'm not sure. Yes and no. The young are too full of self-conscious anxiety to be good at bliss. (You get better at it later).
Can you forgive him? That depends on whether you think Nick Clegg venal or just a political idiot. Seeking power was no sin, as that's the purpose of politics: he is to be judged by how he used it.
The knives are out for the junior doctors as they threaten five-day strikes, starting on 12 September. They can expect both barrels from the Tory press: "How dare the doctors barter lives for cash" asks the Mail. "It will be only a matter of time before the body-count begins."
Malaviya Twenty has been moored in Great Yarmouth docks since December. To look at, it's no rustbucket, kept in good shape by its Indian crew - but when I visited a week ago, they hadn't been paid by the ship's owners for all those months.
Why is anyone surprised that a Conservative government has yet again caved in cravenly to industry and produced a shaming non-policy on childhood obesity? That's what Conservatives do in any clash between business and the environment or general wellbeing, a bias towards profit neatly disguised with a pretended objection to "the nanny state" taking over from personal responsibility.
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
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".
