Manufacturers want to see more economically empowered local government across England. Such councils could deliver faster and forward-thinking decisions, strengthening local business environments, as well as providing a robust voice for industry on the national and international stage. The classic success story is Rolls Royce, which in the early 1900s chose Derby as a base of operations. The forward-thinking council offered cheaper electricity, the new game-changing technology at the time.
Newham LBC mayor Robin Wales has been beaten in the race to stand as Labour’s candidate in May’s election. Rokhsana Fiaz was today selected in a ballot by Labour members, which effectively ends Sir Robin’s 23-year leadership in Newham. He first became leader in 1995 and became the borough’s first elected mayor in 2002. Sir Robin had been re-selected automatically, but a vote of members was triggered when ward parties and affiliate organisations voted for an open contest.
Haringey’s HDV regeneration plans have been blighted by opposition campaigns and bitter disagreements. LGC’s sister title Construction News examines the factors behind the controversy and the consequences for projects across the UK. It has claimed the scalp of Haringey LBC leader Claire Kober (Lab), sparked a legal fight in the High Court and led to a media frenzy over claims of a “hard-left insurgency” in north London – and all without a wrecking ball in sight.
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".
