'Divorce Day' - the first working day in January - is fast approaching and solicitors are expecting a rise in calls as couples make the difficult decision to separate. But why do people file for divorce so soon after the festive period ends? It's been revealed that couples often try to 'keep it together over Christmas' - and there are three main reasons.
A brave cop desperately clung onto a crashed lorry to stop it plummeting over the edge of a bridge with the driver still trapped inside. PC Martin Willis was the first to the smash on the A1(M) on Friday morning and found the truck precariously balanced over the motorway. With the lorry perilously close to toppling over the edge and the driver seriously injured, the West Yorkshire traffic officer held on to the vehicle with his bare hands until back up arrived.
A policeman has been hailed as a hero after he clung onto a crashed lorry for 15 minutes to stop it falling over the edge of a motorway bridge. PC Martin Willis had to hold on for dear life after the vehicle crashed on the A1 near Leeds, leaving it hanging over the edge of a bridge. He was the first on the scene of the incident yesterday morning, which left the truck and its trapped driver perilously close to toppling over the edge.
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".
