A PINEHURST man sick of being intimidated by gangs of youths has called on the council to take measures to stop them congregating and causing a nuisance. Don Maclean, 65, who has lived in Pinehurst for the past 17 years, has launched a campaign to remove a set of benches from outside the One Stop shop in The Circle. Gangs of teenagers routinely gather outside the shop and loiter around the benches, hurling abuse at residents and throwing litter on the floor.
A POPULAR dog trainer has handed over another potentially life-saving piece of equipment to a North Swindon school. Janet Garret, of Janet’s Puppy Skool, has throughout the year been raising funds to put defibrillators in schools, something she considers vitally important. And yesterday she met staff and pupils at Tadpole Farm Primary Academy to hand over the device, the third school to receive a defibrillator through Janet’s fundraising efforts.
THE building of a new £26.5m secondary school which will “give children wings to fly” is finally underway. Local dignitaries and future pupils met at the site of the Deanery CofE Academy in East Wichel today as a special turf cutting ceremony took place. The Rt Rev Dr Lee Rayfield, Bishop of Swindon, blessed the site, situated near Waitrose, and dug his spade into the ground before offering a prayer dedicated “to those who have worked hard to bring us this far”.
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".
