A prosecutor in the trial of two Ulster rugby players accused of rape has insisted it was not a case of a young woman seeking to "bag a celebrity". Summing up on behalf of the prosecution on day 34 of the trial, Toby Hedworth QC said the case was instead "a throwback to the days of male entitlement". He said nightclub CCTV from the night of the alleged rapes showed the woman at the centre of the case spending most of the time talking to a doctor, rather than rugby or football players.
A defence barrister has told the trial of two Ulster rugby players that 20 months of Paddy Jackson's life have been "blighted" by the allegations against him. Mr Jackson and fellow rugby player Stuart Olding both deny raping the same woman in Mr Jackson's bedroom, in June 2016. Mr Jackson's barrister said he was not looking for any special treatment. He said Mr Jackson was not trying to "play the rugby card".
A friend of two Ulster rugby players accused of rape has denied agreeing to "look after" the alleged victim. Rory Harrison, 25, of Manse Road, Belfast, denies perverting the course of justice and withholding information in the case. Under cross-examination, Mr Harrison rejected suggestions he took the woman home on the night in question to protect his friends. A prosecution barrister asked him if he was told "to go and look after her". "No, I was not," replied Mr Harrison.
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".
