OPPONENTS of plans to build holiday lodges in woodlands just outside Malvern will be holding a torchlight vigil on the site this week. The Three Counties Agricultural Society wants to build the lodges in Langdale Wood, off Blackmore Park Road. But its planning application has drawn strong opposition from ramblers, nature lovers and other who say the proposal will spoil the much-loved woodland, which is owned by the society. A petition against the proposal has now attracted 1,600 signatures.
LIFE across the city and beyond is starting to return to normal following the disruption caused by Sunday's heavy snowfall. All of Worcester's schools, and those across south Worcestershire, were able to open their doors yesterday, although in some cases with alterations to timetables and curtailment of after-school activities. Train services, which were heavily disrupted on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, had largely returned to normal yesterday.
HIGHWAYS chief Alan Amos has heaped praise on Worcestershire's roads teams who have worked around the clock to keep drivers moving during the bad weather. Heavy snow at the weekend and then problems with treacherous ice on roads and footpaths have led to tricky conditions for residents. All of Worcestershire's 28 gritters have been out each evening since the weekend, with about 3,000 tonnes of salt being spread in total.
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".
