Two Suffolk-based cheese-makers are celebrating after scooping gold awards at the British Cheese Awards. Baron Bigod, a Brie-de-Meaux style cheese made by dairy farmers Jonathan and Dulcie Crickmore of Fen Farm, Bungay, and White Wood Dairy’s St Jude’s cheese, which is also made at the farm, were awarded the accolade at last month’s Royal Bath & West Show, which hosts more than 800 British cheeses. Julie Cheyney established White Wood Dairy in 2012 in Hampshire.
Farmers are being warned to be on the lookout for areas of crop which appear to be ripening prematurely. Neil Groom, technical director at Eye-based seed merchant Grainseed, said this could be a symptom of soil-borne fungal disease Verticillium wilt. “If you have Verticillium in your soils, the only way to live with it is to grow a variety which has good Verticillium wilt resistance or tolerance,” he said.
CHICAGO — The Chicago Teachers Union has filed a federal lawsuit against the Chicago Board of Education, alleging the board retaliated against an outspoken CPS special education teacher by firing her. Chicago Public Schools officials moved to fire Sarah Chambers, an eight-year teacher at Maria Saucedo Scholastic Academy in Little Village and a leader who has advocated for the needs of CPS special education students, in April. She was immediately suspended from her job.
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".
