Durban - With only 18% of his heart functioning, time was running out for Durban North man Michael Nairn. “Doctors discovered this when they opened him up and we were told he was only a couple of days away from a massive heart attack,” said his partner, Faye Scheepers, recently. Two months earlier, Nairn featured on a page one story in the Daily News, when he said he had been sent home to die by doctors at Durban’s Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital.
Durban - Another slick joint operation swung into action off Durban on Tuesday to rescue a sick seaman. When the word came through that a Filipino crew member on board an Australian ship, the “Lake D” had suffered a stroke, a local National Sea Rescue crew (Clifford Ireland, Jeremiah Jackson and David Hoffman), a paramedic team from Netcare 911 (Gary Paul, Konrad Jones and Dianna Brand) and pilots from 15 Squadron at the Durban Air Force base were alerted.
Durban - When Rescue Care paramedics arrived at a fatal accident scene at the weekend, they found “total carnage”, Rescue Care paramedics director Garrith Jamieson said on Sunday. But what made the situation worse was that while emergency services were attending to 16 injured people, local residents were busy stripping and stealing what they could from two cars and a truck. “This is becoming a trend. It is even happening when injured people are still in their cars,” said Jamieson.
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".
