HOTEL giant Travelodge has announced it is interested in opening a hotel in Galashiels. Bosses at the company say they are searching for 21 new sites across Scotland and are hoping to become the town's first branded hotel. The announcement was made today (Wednesday) at the opening of the new Peterhead hotel. The group is looking at a range of sites in a project which could create around 400 new jobs.
Newcastle United have pulled out of the race to sign Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin, according to The Chronicle. The Magpies had hoped to secure a deal for the forward, for under QPR’s £15m asking price, but the hoops are adamant the 26-year old will stay at Loftus Road until their valuation is met. It would seem the price tag was too high for head coach Steve McClaren’s liking, for the player who only has one year left on his contract.
It has been a quiet week for Newcastle United, but there was a bit more for the fans to cheer about after an encouraging season opener against a solid Southampton side. The Magpies will be looking to take all three points at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, but there has been no new signings made to take to South Wales. Newcastle have been linked with Werder Bremen defender Jannik Vestergaard in the past week, but the reported £7million price tag might put Steve McClaren off.
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".
