Sporting all-rounder and reporter Robin Morris has died, aged 68, after a year-long illness. An ex-international steeplechaser and hill running champion, he was also a golf historian at Royal Burgess, trustee of the Eric Liddell Centre and member of the selection panel for the Scottish Sporting Hall of Fame. Robin chaired Merchiston Community Council and was People’s Warden at Christ Church, Morningside, where a celebration of his life will be held on Friday at 12:30pm.
Every now and then a player comes along whose mere touch of a rugby ball creates a buzz of excitement. The latest to follow the likes of Iwan Tukalo and Stuart Hogg is fresh faced 18-year-old George Horne who, even in the gloom of the shortest day, shone like a beacon from full back as his Currie team drew 17-17 at Heriot’s in an entertaining – if error-strewn – contest that was nothing if not sternly refereed.
Duncan Taylor will have a fitness test on Friday to determine whether a back complaint will prevent him from sitting on Scotland's bench for Saturday's Calcutta Cup encounter against England at Murrayfield. Sean Lamont, capped 101 times, stands by but regardless of the outcome it is likely the 26-year-old utility back Taylor will have some influence.
Important to say this before Rome: Strange Scotland selection = suspicions concerning conflict of interest when a governing body runs “clubs”. With 6N a lost cause is Scotland XV being weakened to strengthen Edin & Glasgow domestically? If so makes a mockery of intl sport.
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".
