It is Solihull in its former glory. Without even a sniff of Touchwood and major retail chains, this video gives us a rare glimpse of Solihull in the 1980s. At a time when camera phones and video recorders were not as freely available, this six minute drive around Solihull captures a unique insight into how the town looked 35 years ago. The video, uploaded by Solihull resident ‘Hillcrest54,’ is thought to have been filmed around summer time during the 1980s.
Imagine getting paid just for having your own opinion. Being constantly asked to fill in surveys can be annoying but now you can get paid for taking part. If you have your own laptop and fancy working from home, then this could be your dream job. 20Cogs are looking for survey participants to get paid for providing their opinions and completing surveys. You could earn up to £300 a month from 20Cogs and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home.
Rosina Hilliard's body was found lying across a narrow road in a building site in Spinney Hill Road, Highfields, Leicester in February 1974. The 24-year-old prostitute had been hit by a car and suffered extensive head injuries and fractures to her spine and collar bone. Someone had also attempted to strangle her but police say it is not known which injury caused her death. This crime committed against the young girl has never been solved.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
