Thank you for visiting my "Quotathon" fundraising page. There is a tradition of the RCVS President raising money towards worthy causes, usually through physical endeavours of various kinds. At the New Year I set myself the task of posting 100 quotations and reflections on Twitter by RCVS Day, 13 July 2018. On 17 February I hit 50 quotations. For a fund raising with a difference, I am now resetting the target to 150 in total, so another 100 Tweets.
All the evidence on which our recommendations were based is included and referenced within our submission to the Migratory Advisory Committee on the impact of Brexit, which is available on BVA’s website. To inform this submission, BVA and RCVS conducted a comprehensive analysis of available data from a range of sources, including Defra, the Food Standards Agency, the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons, the Major Employers Group, RCVS and BVA.
This World Antibiotics Awareness Week we want to take the opportunity to remind vets across the UK of the RCVS Code of Professional Conduct’s requirements on the subject of antibiotic use. Twenty-three thousand practising vets in the UK are united by our obligation to adhere and follow this code, bringing consistency and high standards across the profession. The code recognises that the responsible use of medicines is ‘crucial to animal welfare and the maintenance of public health’.
As a life-long learner, I hope I always question assumptions informing how I conduct myself and carry out my work, but I do expect others likewise to engage constructively, in support of progress. Complex issues can only be nudged forwards if we all work together. #ReflectionFTDhttps://t.co/noN3nnZLA1
I'm a passionate supporter of the professional model and its role in high quality veterinary care. Supported by key principles, professionals intelligently construct often unique solutions for clients. None should be surprised when the the opposite approach fails #ReflectionFTDhttps://t.co/lMktpkdutB
It's humbling that more than 80 years ago, in an address on the 300th anniversary of HE in the US, AE concluded that we're better "able to adapt..to progress and changes" if we have the "ability for independent thinking and judgement" - perhaps more important today #ReflectionFTDhttps://t.co/CypmWZh4UF
Alongside discussion on student debt and access, the fees debate is shining a light on the purpose of universities. Surely it is the development of our minds so that we can attach meaning to what we learn and use our understanding purposefully in our work and lives #ReflectionFTDhttps://t.co/ATm8AzlYzL
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".
