IT’S now just 10 sleeps for Newport County AFC fans until their club’s mouth-watering FA Cup showdown with Spurs. But while supporters are eagerly anticipating the visit of Mauricio Pochettino’s men to Rodney Parade, Exiles striker Frank Nouble is keen to keep everyone’s feet firmly on the ground. County have a brace of crucial League Two games before the Londoners arrive in South Wales on January 27, starting this Friday against Crawley Town.
NEWPORT County AFC are pulling out all the stops for their money-spinning FA Cup fourth round glamour tie against Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur. The demand for tickets to see the Rodney Parade clash next Saturday is so great that the Exiles want to install an additional 1,000 seats behind the North Terrace.
HEAD coach Bernard Jackman has described Harri Keddie’s decision to sign a new Dragons deal as a huge boost for the Rodney Parade region. Back-row starlet Keddie, 21, put pen to paper on a fresh contract that will keep him with the Men of Gwent for the next three seasons. Keddie joins Joe Davies, Jack Dixon and James Benjamin as well as Welsh internationals Leon Brown, Elliot Dee, Ollie Griffiths and Cory Hill in extending his stay at the Dragons.
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".
