AN X-RAY error left a young Isle of Wight man disabled and facing a hip replacement before he turns 40. The Isle of Wight NHS Trust has paid 22-year-old Jake Hill £125,000 in compensation after misdiagnosing his condition as a child. Jake, of The Fairway, Sandown, was just 12 years old when he first attended St Mary's Hospital suffering from hip pain.
TWO young sisters and a team of visually impaired swimmers were among those who took the plunge for charity. Nineteen people of all ages and abilities, including schoolchildren and pensioners, made their way to Ryde's Waterside Pool on Saturday evening to take part in the Swimathon 2017. Swimmers could take part individually or as a team, and swim between one and three miles â€” the equivalent of sixty to 200 lengths.
THE Island’s Wight Hot Pipes have headed to the Big Apple for the biggest gig of their career. The Celtic rock band have been booked to play this year’s New York City Tartan Week, a celebration of the city’s Scottish heritage. After flying out this week, the band played Connolly’s Pub and Restaurant on West 45th Street on Wednesday and will play Manhattan’s famous BB King Blues Club tonight (Saturday) — after the Tartan Day Parade through the city.
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".
