A parent-governor accused of being involved in a “Trojan horse” plot to radicalise a primary school in Oldham says he was merely concerned about low standards and has been vindicated by a report placing the school in special measures. The Ofsted report brands Clarksfield primary as inadequate in all areas, saying it provides pupils with a “dismal start to school life”.
People living in Hull have been asked to close their doors and windows after a major acid leak caused a vapour cloud to form over a dock in the east of the city. Humberside fire and rescue said crews were called to a leak in a tank containing 580 tonnes of hydrochloric acid at the King George dock late on Monday. Fifty firefighters were dealing with the incident near the river Hull.
The death of a nine-year-old boy following an allergic reaction was partly down to neglect by his school, an inquest jury has found. Mohammed Ismaeel Ashraf collapsed less than two hours after eating a lunch of fish fingers and chips at Al-Hijrah school in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, in March. He was taken to Heartlands hospital, where he later died. Pathologists concluded that Mohammed died from an anaphylactic reaction, caused by an unknown allergen.
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".
