From the Yorkshire Ripper to Stephen Lawrence’s murderers, Angela Gallop has played a vital role in bringing some of the country’s worst killers to justice. Chris Burn reports. Moving from studying sea slugs on the Isle of Wight to solving some of Britain’s most notorious murders is not a typical career trajectory.
Sir David Frost’s family were still coming to terms with the death of the much-loved broadcaster in August 2013 when tragedy struck them again less than two years later. His son Miles collapsed while out jogging in July 2015 and died at the age of 31. It was subsequently discovered that Miles had the inherited heart condition hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), a condition which is undiagnosed in the majority of sufferers.
Four fearless friends with military connections are preparing to row across the Atlantic next year to mark a century since the end of the First World War. Chris Burn reports. It is known as the ‘world’s toughest endurance race’, covering 3,000 nautical miles and taking months to complete. Now a group of friends from Yorkshire are attempting to join the select band who have managed to row across the Atlantic - a feat achieved by fewer people than have gone into space or climbed Mount Everest.
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".
