A toxic smog will hit parts of Britain tomorrow as councils continue to deal with roads melting and rail lines buckling amid soaring temperatures, with workers facing a commute in the hottest June day since 1976. Tarmac has been turning into a liquid mess in Surrey, Cambridge, Manchester and Lancashire today with highs of 91.5F (33C) but tomorrow will be even hotter, as temperatures soars to 93.2F (34C).
The seriously injured mother and sister of the Manchester bombing's youngest victim 'are going to be okay,' a family friend revealed yesterday. Saffie Roussos, eight, died at the scene when the rucksack bomb exploded as she was leaving the concert with her mother Lisa, 48, and half-sister Ashlee Bromwich, 25. The 'adorable' little girl is one of the UK's youngest-ever terror victims and her family is yet to reveal if Mrs Roussos knows about her death.
The partner of the murdered off-duty policewoman is desperately ill and unaware the woman who brought joy back to his life is dead. Paul Price, 49, has been sedated ever since he and Detective Constable Elaine McIver, 43, were blasted with shrapnel as they waited for his teenage daughter in the Manchester Arena foyer. His father John Price, 79, wept yesterday as he told how his son was in a 'very dark place' after a bitter divorce before Miss McIver came into his life 'like an angel.'
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".
