HAMPSHIRE County Council’s leader has revived his plan for a ‘combined authority’ – and has warned other council leaders they face financial strife if they do not team up. Councillor Roy Perry, pictured, has written to borough and district council leaders and bosses at Southampton, Portsmouth and Isle of Wight unitary authorities calling on them to co-operate.
Southampton Voluntary Services (SVS), the umbrella body for local voluntary and community groups working in the city, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The group was formally created in 1968 as the Southampton Council of Social Service Organisations with the aim of supporting, promoting and empowering charities in the city. SVS started with 42 organisations within the membership and has grown to now supporting over 500 community organisations, charities and social enterprises.
A STUDENT has told how he was punched in the face and had a knife scratched across his neck in a shocking attack by a gang of nine men. James Johnston has described the moment the group attacked him on his way home from a house party in the middle of the night. The 22-year-old journalism student from Millbrook left a party in Ridding Close, Shirley. While his friends went home in a taxi, James walked home down Church Street. He was then approached by several men in their late teens and early 20s.
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".
