Hundreds of individuals and organisations were nominated for an awards ceremony which recognises those who strive to help others in a Breckland town. The Thetford Awards Recognising Achievement, known as the TARAs, was started two years ago to give praise to those who give a lot to the community but normally do so without recognition. In July nominations opened for people to submit a person or local group who has made a difference to Thetford.
Good grief! Is there such a thing? On Nov. 6 the last of my and my husband’s parents passed away, throwing us into that insidious emotion that comes over you in waves. For those of us who have lost someone dear, feeling grief would not be an unknown emotion. I think the worst part of it is how uncontrollable it can be. I knew Charles Wesley Murphy (Charlie, Char and Chuck, as he was also known) for half his life and more than half my own. He was 89 the end of August and a man of many talents.
On what was one of the coldest nights of the year a group of hardy souls braved the elements to help the vulnerable in their town. Volunteers from First Aid Support Thetford (FAST) spent from 9pm until 3.30pm on Friday night patrolling around Thetford. They were armed with first aid kits, foil blankets, chocolate and water, ready to help those who had a bit too much to drink, who were unable to get home, who were injured or emotionally distressed.
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".
