A judge has slammed a parish council for sacking a cleaner who raised concerns about a fire alarm not working. Terrington St Clement Parish Council was taken to an employment tribunal by the cleaner and caretaker of its pavilion, Lindsey Miles, in November last year for unfair dismissal. In the decision published this week, Judge Postle said he was “entirely satisfied” that the reason for Miss Miles’ dismissal was because she complained about the alarm system in January last year.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is in the worst financial state in its history and yet continues to face a huge bill to the firm which built it. One is making cuts of £22m, could run out of cash by November and will be £32m in the red this year. The other paid out almost £7m to shareholders last year, has just reported a record profit, and turned over £42m last year.
The financial watchdog has been told to apologise to a north Norfolk whistleblower for revealing his identity to the bank he was complaining about. Mark Wright, a former manager at the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), made allegations to watchdog the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) that files had been falsified at the bank. During enquiries in 2013, the FCA disclosed his name to RBS.
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".
