It was a tale of two countries - the hottest summer solstice on record in England, while thundery downpours drenched parts of Scotland. Temperatures reached 34.5C at Heathrow Airport on the longest day of the year, which was also June’s hottest in the UK for 40 years. However, it remained nearly 1C lower than the monthly record, of 35.6C in Southampton during the drought of 1976.
His admission confirms a Scotland on Sunday story, which also revealed the first electric trains would not run until October - nearly a year late. Mr Carne said delays to the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (Egip) were "most regrettable" and they would increase its cost, which is currently estimated by Network Rail as £804 million. However, he declined to say what the final cost of the project would be because "some of the costs are commercially in dispute".
Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said the party had run the SNP so close it could win any seat in the next election. Ms Dugdale also hailed its six new MPs for providing nearly one quarter of the resurgent party’s gains at Westminster. She described the increase from one seat in 2015, and coming within 100 votes of the Nationalists in other seats, as a “fantastic result”.
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".
