THERE is still no mention of Trowbridge getting the swimming pool it was promised despite Wiltshire Council getting £700,000 to redevelop the sites opposite County Hall and in Ashton Street. This week the authority announced it had received £600,000 from the government to go towards the East Wing site in Bythesea Road, and £100,000 to demolish an old council building in Ashton Street, which will then be sold off to developers.
A TROWBRIDGE business owner says Wiltshire Council is rubbish at sorting out the town’s litter problems after taking away a damaged bin and not replacing it. Edward Kirk, owner of school shop Scholar’s, said that not long before Christmas, a car damaged a large bin that used to be on the towpath on Seymour Estate. Wiltshire Council took away the damaged bin but as part of its policy, the authority now asks town and parish councils to pay for replacements.
A TRAIN conductor was headbutted and verbally abused by a man at Trowbridge station. Police have released CCTV images of the assault that took place at 6pm on January 26. As the train was preparing to leave, three men and a woman forced open the train doors, despite them being locked shut ready for departure. The conductor approached the group and asked them to leave the train.
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".
