Rough sleepers at Oxford Road’s homeless shelter The Ark were evicted by Manchester Metropolitan University for a second time this morning. High court bailiffs started to dismantle the camp at around 7am after university bosses were granted a possession order for the land at a court hearing last Tuesday. Around a dozen people had been camped on where The Ark’s occupants resettled just metres from where the ‘self serving community’ was originally built a few months ago.
The moment a terrified young family were almost rammed off the road by a mystery driver has been caught on camera. Dashcam footage shows Nicolette Postlethwaite, 35, driving home with boyfriend David Conroy, 46, and her daughter Kayleigh, 12, in the car. The trio had just left Tesco Express in Wigan, but say that within seconds of setting off from the store were ‘tailgated’ by a black Renault Megane.
Philosopher Aristotle said ‘adventure is worthwhile’, and it’s a sentiment which always struck a chord with me. Though I never fulfilled my childhood dream to become Indiana Jones, I’ve tried to travel and immerse myself in new cultures. Of course being an explorer isn’t easy these days, but Cathay Pacific’s five-times-weekly direct flights from Manchester to Hong Kong on their new A350 aircraft make discovering new worlds all too tempting.
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".
