Police are issuing a reminder to dog owners to keep their pets under control after sheep have been killed and viciously attackedOfficers said they had been dealing with a number of incidents, especially in the Bolton-By-Bowland area of the Ribble Valley, where dogs have attacked sheep. Now, they are warning pet owners that failure to control the dog could lead to prosecution or the pet being destroyed. It is an offence to allow pets to worry sheep. Worrying includes attacking or chasing sheep.
Celebrating her 103rd birthday is Mrs Edith Lawson, who puts her longevity down to staying active. The much-loved woman marked the special birthday at The Manor House Nursing Home in Chatburn. Edith was born in 1915 at Sykes Cottage, near Dunsop Bridge. Then, aged three, with parents Charles and Margaret Winder, the family moved to Meanley Farm at Newton, where Edith lived for more than 80 years.
Residents in the Ribble Valley, especially the elderly and those living alone, are being urged to be vigilant after a number of attempted frauds. The warning has been issued by police, who have received five reports this month of conmen targeting elderly victims for cash in the Clitheroe area. Police said on each occasion the victim has received a phone call from a man claiming to be from the police.
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".
