Tim Robinson, COO of TechEast, shares his monthly roundup of tech news from the East of England. East Anglia’s thriving tech scene is by no means a lucky coincidence. The region’s success is due, in part, to the many great universities based here. As well as providing a constant stream of talented graduates, the region’s universities are also heavily involved with their own activities to support their local tech scene – this month more than usual.
A 'once in a generation' opportunity may be emerging for the UK to be at the leading edge of the next revolution in aerospace – hybrid-electric flight. TIM ROBINSON reports on the significance of the launch of the Airbus/Rolls-Royce/ Siemens E-Fan X prototype. Over half a century ago, strange delta-winged aircraft flew in British skies, portending a future of high-speed passenger flight. These prototypes, the BAC 221 (the modified Fairey Delta 2) and the Handley Page HP.
TIM ROBINSON reports from the fourth and final trade day of the 2017 Dubai Air Show and provides analysis. Those who thought the last trade day of the air show would quietly peter out in terms of big commercial aviation news had their expectations confounded when not one, but two massive airliner orders were announced by both Airbus and Boeing, each deal setting records. Let's take a look at the biggest headlines.
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".
