A homeless man was seriously injured after he was accidentally tipped into the back of a refuse truck. The man, who had been sheltering in an industrial sized dumpster, was taken to hospital with a broken leg and pelvis after becoming trapped in the vehicle. Waste firm Veolia, whose staff were emptying the bin in Rochester, Kent described the incident as "distressing" and explained that its crews had not seen the man as he was hidden beneath carpet.
Family of a disabled man knocked down on a zebra crossing are demanding the authorities prosecute the driver of the car that hit him. Tony Hollingsbee’s groin was pierced by his brake handle after he was struck by a red car while cycling across the Kingsmead end of Broad Oak near Canterbury. The 26-year-old, whose learning disability means he has the mental age of a nine-year-old, spent the next four days in Ashford’s William Harvey Hospital after suffering a nasty gash.
Officers closed a section of St George’s Place outside Steinbeck and Shaw after the disturbance at 11.20pm. The popular club is understood to have been forced to shut its doors for the night after sections of a 150-strong queue outside grew impatient as they failed to gain entry as it hit capacity.
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".
