A mum has criticised a Royal Mail driver after she filmed a delivery van swerving past an oncoming flashing ambulance and driving down the pavement. Caroline Mullineaux filmed the van on dashcam as it makes way for the emergency vehicle by mounting the empty kerb but not stopping. Royal Mail has backed its driver saying it was "quite clear that the postman driving took an emergency measure to mount the pavement to allow an ambulance to pass for a matter of seconds".
Yobs who burgled a house after apparently learning the owner was on holiday through Facebook allegedly returned to start a fire in the garden. Terrifying CCTV footage captured billowing smoke and fierce flames erupting outside a home in front of a police van, which had been sent following a break-in. The video, taken from a neighbouring property, shows two hooded men approaching the door before the fire was started.
A dad claims to have captured this image of a ' ghost of an old lady' who is haunting his family after they moved into her old house. Luke Jackson claims that the picture shows the old lady - who died 18 months ago - trying to open the kitchen door of the home. He explained how he is currently staying at his brother Tom's house in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. One night, in the early hours of November 13 when he could not sleep, Luke got up for a cigarette.
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".
