Take a step back in time with these pictures of Coventry city centre taken more than 100 years ago. The photographs were taken by Wyatt Wingrave who owed a chemist shop in the High Street and was also a gifted photographer. They date back to about the 1860s. There isn’t a single car in in any of the pictures because at that time people in Coventry didn’t have them - instead horse drawn carts wait outside shops for deliveries or travel the streets.
A drone operator standing in the middle of a busy road was just one of a host incidents reported to Coventry Police. Police received complaints that the flyer was blocking the traffic while controlling the machine. It was one of 29 incidents reported to police in Coventry between the beginning of 2012 and May 2017. Another caller rang to say a drone had crashed in their garden and another warned of one being flown near an airport.
See Coundon Hall Park from above in this stunning drone footage. Drone operator Phil Daniel has taken this video of the park, also known as Coundon Park, in Waste Lane, Coventry, along with nearby fields, woods and streets. The park takes its name from Coundon Hall, also known as the Old Hall, on Tamworth Road, built in the 19th century as a grand residence. It was a house until 1947 when it was bought by a brewery to use as licensed premises.
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".
