AN apprentice electrician thought he was dead when he was set on fire during an accident while testing equipment at the new Police Scotland HQ, a court heard. Joseph Hendry, 23, said he attached a cable while "under pressure" and “it flashed” - sending him across the room. He described his t-shirt smouldering with flames when he realised what had happened, and was taken to hospital suffering from a number of burns.
Joe McElderry loves a good car album. One of those records which leaves you punching the air in traffic, a shout-out-the-window anthem. Or a tearful ballad during a roundabout tussle. The Geordie-born singer is hoping to provide fans with all that and more with his latest effort. After starring in the lead role of Bill Kenwright's Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the X Factor winner has teamed up with the theatre producer for an album inspired by a love for film and musicals.
A COUPLE have been convicted attempting to murder a pensioner and his son in their own home. Mark Lafferty, 53 and his partner Adeline Clark, 41, presented a knife Christine McCowan, 68, and forced their way into the house where they robbed her of a purse - but only made off with £35. When upstairs they launched the knife attack on 71-year-old Dennis McCowan and his son, Mark, 46 when they barged in with their faces masked.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
