While hundreds in the town centre stopped to pay their respects to fallen servicemen and women, Spencer Harrison was shouting, swearing and trying to start fights with strangers, Maidstone Magistrates’ Court was told. The 24-year-old, formerly of Pelican Court in Wateringbury, was also said to have spat at one of the soldiers or veterans marching in the parade, although he denied that aspect of the offence.
A village vicar is turning grape juice into wine, by reintroducing the traditional Holy Communion. St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Yalding became one of the first in the UK to go teetotal in 2013, a decision made due to its close association with the Kenward Trust which runs an alcohol and drug rehab centre in the village. All communion wine became non-alcoholic so recovering addicts could fully participate in the Holy Sacrament, where wine represents the blood of Christ and the bread his body.
The couple and their two children had been living in temporary accommodation in Maidstone, arranged by the authority via a private landlord, after they were granted asylum in 2015. But after a minor dispute the family, who were not named in the report, were ordered to pack immediately and to live in a B&B for 11 weeks while alternative housing was found.
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".
