The family of a former Falkirk FC player who took his own life weeks after quitting professional football have set up a foundation in his name. Chris Mitchell, who spent 12 years playing at clubs across the UK, died in May last year at the age of 27. The Stirling-born player struggled with the transition into a normal job after quitting Clyde FC, a problem his family believe may be widespread. His father Philip said: "Christopher's deterioration was there in front of us.
Adrian Edmondson orders a fresh orange juice and an espresso. We’re in a smart café near the Regent’s Canal in King’s Cross. I’m expecting the man who was Vyvyan in The Young Ones to be all movement and edginess, but he’s bearded and laid back. At 60, after a long career in comedy, Edmondson is suddenly starting to be taken seriously as an actor. His Count Rostov in last year’s BBC adaptation of War and Peace was a brilliant turn, capturing the Count’s ebullience and generosity of spirit.
There is nothing ordinary about Lesley Sharp. As an actress, she is often credited with bringing everyday characters to life: frustrated wives such as Jean in The Full Monty, for which she was nominated for a Bafta; the textile worker Trudy, grieving for her father in Paul Abbott’s Clocking Off. But in person she’s different.
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".
