The crowds on the Edinburgh Castle esplanade waited for hours in cold to get up-close and personal with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and those who did were not disappointed. There was much excitement as the Royal couple travelled up the lines of people who were hemmed in six-deep behind the barriers. The crowds surged forward as soon as the pair stopped to receive presents and chat.
A memorial ceremony to honour Greyfriars Bobby has been saved after an Edinburgh funeral director stepped in to re-erect his master's gravestone which had been pushed over by vandals. The gravestone in Greyfriars Kirkyard was knocked over last weekend and City of Edinburgh Council was unable to repair it in time for Sunday's event.

Beaters from a local shoot are being brought in to flush out an escaped buffalo which is hiding in a 100 acre wood in Fife. The 400kg bull, which jumped a gate during a routine weighing, disappeared on Saturday from Clentrie Farm in Auchterool near Kirkcaldy. The one-year-old is now in an area near Shawsmill farm, Lochgelly. Some placid buffalo will also be brought to the area in a bid to lure out the young "frightened" animal.
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".
