Forty years ago this month Nottingham Forest took their eye off the ball ... to make a pop record. ANDY SMART tells the storyTo look at it in football terms, John McGovern reckons the Forest squad were robbed when they made their 1978 recording of We’ve Got The Whole World In Our Hands. The song cleverly named all the players who were re-writing football history under Brian Clough and quickly became a favourite of the City Ground faithful.
When we moved to a newly-built bungalow in Stapleford, the whole estate had Australian place names – Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hobart, Canberra and Adelaide to mention a few. Since the area, as far as I know, has no links with Down Under, I have never been able to fathom how this came about. But I suppose councils and developers have got to settle on a name for new roads and streets – and it’s easy to see why they go for “themed” estates.
When talented gymnast Chelsie Orme’s dreams of Olympic stardom were shattered due to injury, she found it heartbreaking to pick herself up from such life-changing disappointment. A teenager at the time, Chelsie, from Bilborough, had to completely reset her aspirations and so she began a new career looking after disabled children.
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".
