A total of 173 were caught in the act during exams, mainly by using mobile phones. And a further 32 were found to have cheated on coursework through plagiarism. The figures show cheating has been steadily reducing over the past five years at the university. In 2011/12, 52 students were caught cheating in exams and four on coursework. But by 2015/16, the figure was down to 31 cheating in exams and just two on coursework.
Wolves, Albion, Villa, and Blues have all been bought out by Chinese investors - and now it's the turn of a little corner of Stafford. Last November, the New Beacon Group purchased Staffordshire University's recently vacated Beaconside campus. And they have ambitious plans for the 46-acre site on the town's, rather fittingly, eastern fringe. The sports facilities across Weston Road have just been refurbished and a £1 million revamp of the iconic Octagon building could soon start.
The iconic building – once home to one of the most technologically advanced computing facilities in Europe – will be transformed into an education and innovation hub offering university degree-level courses and act as a base for entrepreneurs. The New Beacon Group, which bought the 46-acre site at Beaconside last year, said the Octagon would be at the ‘centre’ of its plans for the campus, which will combine the best of ‘east and west’ teaching.
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
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".
