Police are urging a man who was seen standing outside a school wearing a Halloween mask to come forward. A mum posted on Facebook that she saw the man outside Brackla Primary School in Bridgend as she dropped her son off at around lunchtime on Tuesday. “There was a man stood by the gates by the lane watching the kids playing,” she wrote. “He was wearing all black, his hood was up and he had a green Halloween mask on!
Two people were cut free by firefighters following a three-vehicle crash. The crash on the A4063 by the Bridgend Paper Mills, near Maesteg , left the road closed for almost two hours. A spokesman for South Wales Police said they were called to the scene shortly after 11.30am. The road has since been reopened. South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said three crews were sent to the scene. "The incident involved two motor vehicles and one light commercial vehicle," said a spokesman.
Members of judo clubs from across Wales are being invited to come together in honour of a star of the sport who died aged 26. Jamie MacDonald , from Maesteg, had competed at the Commonwealth Games, but was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in 2015. He died in November following a brave fight, during which he supported a number of fundraising campaigns including Stand Up To Cancer.
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".
