Liverpool council says it is NOT closing the popular Everton park sports centre, despite an online petition suggesting the complex is under threat. The ECHO has been contacted by people fearing the Lifestyles Everton Park centre could close. And a petition online to protest against the rumoured ‘closure’ has more than 2,600 supporters. But council officials say closure is not on the agenda. Instead they are planning to find someone else to run the centre as the authority has to make £90m in cuts.
Shipyard Cammell Laird slammed the S*n over an “inaccurate and misleading” story about the building of a ship named after Sir David Attenborough. The tabloid – reviled in Merseyside for its lies over Hillsborough – published a story about the numbers of “migrants” employed by the shipyard. But the yard says the story is inaccurate and hit out at the paper for discussing “inflammatory rhetoric” against migrant workers.
The Arriva bus strikes that could stretch across most of December may appear to be over PENNIES – but the union says the principle is much bigger. Arriva drivers are walking out again today in a pay row after several previous strikes that have caused disruption across the region. Crisis talks were held again on Friday but broke up without agreement. Arriva tabled an improved pay figure it said was a “final offer” and insisted was a “fair pay deal”.
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".
