Some of the names are instantly recognisable and integral to the history of Wales. Others are not so well-known and their names, just like their buildings and villagers, all but lost to time. These are Wales' lost and abandoned villages and neighbourhoods. Perhaps the most famous of them all, Capel Celyn was flooded to create a fresh water reserve for Liverpool in 1965, becoming Llyn Celyn.
A husband and wife targeted a chain of restaurants - running off without paying their bills in a spate of “dine and dash” crimes. Mortgage advisor Paul Brown and wife Rhiannon racked up an average of £91 a time at the Beefeater chain’s restaurants before fleeing. Cardiff magistrates heard the Browns “got their kicks” by sneaking out before paying for their meals and drinks from the chain with 140 restaurants around Britain.
A mum of two was killed as she pulled out of a petrol station when two boy racers caused a 70mph crash, a court was told. Joseph Fettah, 19, allegedly revved to 70mph on the 30mph road in the “impromptu race” with Jamie Oaten, 23. The pair allegedly encouraged each other “to drive faster and faster” as they sped along a street in Barry, Cardiff Crown Court was told. But Oaten’s Audi A5 crashed into “tragic” Jenna Miller, 30, moments after she had refuelled her car at a petrol station.
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".
