The northbound carriageway on the A77 Kilmarnock bypass from Spittalhill to Inchgotrick Bridge is to close during the first weekend in December. As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ will undertake the resurfacing of the A77 northbound between Friday, December 1, and Monday, December 4. The £330,000 project will begin at 8pm on December 1 and is expected to be completely by 6am on December 4.
Steve Clarke insists his Kilmarnock players need a helping hand from the fans as they look to record their first home victory of the season. Aberdeen are the visitors to Rugby Park on Sunday for the lunchtime kick-off, which is live on Sky Sports. Killie have already played seven times at home this season but have yet to win a game in the league. And Clarke has targeted the meeting with the Dons – whose manager Derek McInnes continues to be linked with a move to Rangers – this weekend.
Kilmarnock have signed midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu on a deal until the end of the season. The former Premier League star has had recent spells with Norwich City and West Bromich Albion, where he worked under current Killie boss Steve Clarke. Mulumbu had spent two weeks on trial with the Rugby Park club before Clarke made his move and signed up the energetic 30-year-old.
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".
