Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital’s deputy chief operation officer has urged residents to access health services wisely this year. The first winter pressure situation report published by NHS England shows 1,407 patients arrived by ambulance over one week at Queen’s and King George Hospital. The report, which covers November 27 to December 3, also shows that 184 patients had to wait in the back of an ambulance outside the hospital for between 30 and 60 minutes.
Shoppers in Redbridge have been warned by police not to fall for what is one of the oldest tricks in the book - the ‘three cup’ scam. Con artists have been seen operating in areas including Ilford Lane and have been ripping customers off with an ancient magic trick. The trick involves hiding a ball under a cup and then getting members of the public to place bets as to which cup it’s under.
Performing arts students will be celebrating the magic of Christmas in the traditional way — by staging a panto. Students at the Chadwell Heath campus will soon be taking to the stage to perform their Christmas show Santa’s Lost His Reindeer. Patrick O’Sullivan, head of performing arts, said: “The show promises to be full of fun and laughter for young audiences and will be a truly magical piece of children’s theatre.
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".
