An alarming spate of incidents involving thugs throwing heavy objects at moving cars has been revealed by Derbyshire police. One recent incident saw a heavy item, thought to have been a brick, thrown at a vehicle being driven down the A516 near Etwall. A driver was also left with glass in his mouth after an object was hurled at his car as he passed through Hilton. There have also been reports of attacks in Hatton, Findern, Chellaston and Stenson.
Motorists are being warned that one lane on the A38 will be closed on six separate days over the next six weeks. The closures will be on the stretch of the route through Amber Valley as the borough council needs to clear verges of rubbish. The first day when one lane will shut is this Sunday from 5am to 4pm. There will then be one lane shut in the same area and between the same times on each of the six following Sundays. They are March 4, 11, 18 and 25, and April 1 and 8.
A 79-year-old woman had money snatched from her hand after she took it out of an Ilkeston cash machine. A post from a family member on the Facebook page Spotted Ilkeston Town 2 said that "lads from 63 Barbers" nearby gave chase but couldn't catch him. It said the lady was left "very shaken and upset" and added that £100 had been taken. The incident happened at a cash machine outside the HSBC bank in Wilmot Street at around 9.10am on Friday.
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".
