A six-year-old girl who cannot walk and talk has been given a new lease of life with the help of a Weston-super-Mare charity. Alannah Edwards, who lives in Weston Village with her parents Andy and Lisa and 11-year-old sister Ella, is registered blind and has a global developmental delay which means she cannot sit unaided or stand.
The decision Weston had no buildings worthy of preserving made headlines in Weston Mercury and Somerset Herald 50 years ago. Here is the news from the February 16 edition in 1968. • ‘Dangerously high’ levels of gas were discovered in a Weston-super-Mare street, where there was fracture in a gas main. Gas board engineers were in Langford Road for seven hours, as the amount of gas was sufficient to cause an explosion, and it had already seeped into the sewers.
The Royal Ballet will revive its modern show The Winter’s Tale, and it will be screened live at the Odeon in Weston. The ballet is based on William Shakespeare’s play, and received its premiere at the Royal Opera House in 2014. It has since been staged in Toronto, New York and Brisbane and the production was nominated for an Olivier Award for outstanding achievement in dance.
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".
