DETAILED plans to transform the centre of Clydebank have been submitted after years of development. The way Bankies drive, walk and cycle along Glasgow Road and Dumbarton Road and get to the town hall, library and future developments are all set to change if councillors give the go-ahead. Sustrans Scotland has committed £2 million to the project, which was widely praised by councillors in 2016 and 2017. With the formal planning application under way, Provost William Hendrie declined to comment.
IF Bruce Peter had a time machine, he would go back to the original QE2 as she was when she left the Clyde in 1969. The professor of design history at Glasgow School of Art has curated a new exhibit on the famous liner, QE2 50 Years Later, at the centre’s Reid Building, which brings together original photographs, menus, brochures, models, crockery, silverware and more from the ship.
THE former Exxon site at Bowling is polluted with enough toxic levels of asbestos to make it unsafe for use, a report has revealed. Details emerged as oil giant Esso applied to voluntarily clean up the land once used by its subsidiaries. As well as asbestos there are high levels of lead, arsenic, mercury and other chemicals. But the “human health risk report” states the pollutants are below maximum “safe for use” levels.
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".
