Two of Newham’s leisure centres are set to benefit from a £1.6 million refurbishment. Balaam Leisure Centre, in Balaam Street, Plaistow, and Newham Leisure Centre, in Prince Regent Lane, will be closed temporarily while work is carried out. When they reopen on January 2, they will both feature state-of-the-art equipment, revamped changing rooms and more space for members to work out.
Cancer survivors in east London are set to benefit after a £2.5 million grant was awarded to develop and test a new talking-based therapy. The project is being led by Queen Mary University of London, Barts Health NHS Trust and King’s College London, and will also involve researchers from universities and health trusts in London, Sheffield and Southampton.
Driverless cars and buses are set to become a common sight in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Following the successful trial of a self-driving shuttle bus earlier this year, the park has been awarded government funding to further develop autonomous vehicles. It is part of a consortium working to boost the self-driving sector and will provide a real world test environment for future experimental vehicles.
@ThatChloeMayer@joshuaffowler I've often thought that office would make a brilliant sitcom...if only I was any good at scripts 😂 glad you like the piece though, tempted to buy a copy of the book myself as well (after payday!)
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".
