Craig Benson completed a terrific breaststroke treble at the Scottish National Short Course Championships at the Royal Commonwealth Pool yesterday. With the 50 metres and 100m already in the bag, the 200m final was a thrilling clash between Benson and his University of Stirling clubmate, Ross Murdoch. Murdoch will defend the title at the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast in April, but it was Benson who took the glory in Edinburgh last night.
There were a few scares along the way, but Kirsty Gilmour finally got the job done and claimed the Scottish Open Grand Prix women’s singles title in front of her home fans yesterday at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow. Facing the talented 20-year-old Dane, Mia Blichfeldt, the No 1 seed had to produce her best form of the championships to win 23-21, 21-12 in a highly entertaining 50-minute final. The victory jig said it all.
It’s the one that she wants. Kirsty Gilmour took another massive step towards claiming her first Scottish Open Grand Prix women’s singles title at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow. The Scottish top seed had survived a testing quarter-final on Friday evening, but she came out all guns blazing yesterday afternoon and shrugged off the challenge from Soraya De Visch Eijbergen.
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".
