Council bosses in South Tyneside are urging people to play their part in recycling rubbish. National Recycle Week, which starts today, aims to get more people recycling more items, more often. The theme of the week is ‘Recycling – it’s worth it’ and aims to highlight how recycling just one extra item per household can significantly reduce the total amount of waste sent to landfill - and bring huge benefits to the environment and local communities.
Rubbish which people in South Tyneside had arranged to be taken away was found dumped on a public right of way. The waste was dumped on a path used by walkers and cyclists in the Leam Lane area of Gateshead earlier this year after being collected by ACC House and Rubbish Removals Ltd of Washington. Magistrates in Gateshead heard officers from the council’s environmental enforcement team launched an investigation and traced the rubbish back to addresses in South Tyneside.
As the Strictly Come Dancing live shows get underway tomorrow, bosses at The Customs House in South Shields are hoping dance fans might pick up the phone for something other than voting for your favourite couple. Tickets are now on sale for The Magic of Hollywood, featuring Pasha, at venue, in Mill Dam, South Shields next year. Pasha arrived in the UK in 2011 as one of the professionals on Strictly Come Dancing and lifted the glitterball trophy in 2014 with TV presenter Caroline Flack.
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".
