Kirsty Millican writes: Today, this site is located within a large, open, arable field, and is situated on a relatively level terrace, on a slight spur, overlooking a stream valley to the north and smaller gully to the west. From the location of the timber hall, the ground slopes away quite sharply to the stream valley to the north and north-west, and more gently to the east and west.
I’ve written a fair bit in this column about the potential for virtual reality and augmented reality to change the way certain tasks in construction are carried out. Most recently, I looked at how VR, in particular, could be used for training by helping to transform behaviours, rather than carrying out practical construction-related tasks. CITB has also been considering this in-depth and has just published a report on the topic, titled A New Reality: Immersive Learning in Construction.
A clear message from the Hansford Review is that the rail sector must provide strong assurances to private capital to drive fresh investment into the rail network. Investors need greater confidence in the outcomes, as well as reassurance that the problems which plagued some past public-private partnerships initiatives can be avoided. Network Rail chief executive Mark Carne’s comments to the Rail Industry Association this month suggest the operator is meeting this challenge head on.
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".
