Christmas! It’s now close enough to the big day for me to even mention the word. Yes, I am one of those people who grouches about mince pies in September, and with good reason. Christmas is special, and should remain so. This dilution of the effect by dribbling tinsel and cards into the shops as the kids go back from the summer holidays is becoming faintly ridiculous, and the magic of those last few special weeks is diminished. Some people don’t even take the lights off their outside trees any more.
It’s exactly 100 years ago that a man ‘falsely’ confessed to committing a murder in Huddersfield that still remains unsolved. On the morning of Monday, February 15, 1915, the body of 32-year-old Carrie Jubb was found in a sunken water tub in the Brook Street yard of Messrs John Beever and Sons, rag manufacturers, Huddersfield. The victim had a large scalp wound and her arms were severely bruised, as if violently restrained. Her body was taken to the town’s Back Ramsden Street mortuary.
Rising Giants star Izaac Farrell is to spend 2018 on loan at Batley. The 19-year-old goalkicking half-back has made the move to the Championship club to help him continue his rugby league development as he looks to push on towards securing a regular Huddersfield Super League spot. Farrell will be linking up at Mount Pleasant with older brother Joel, and has been charged with the task of challenging established halves Patch Walker and Dom Brambani for a starting shirt with the Gallant Youths.
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".
