The Kilmarnock restaurant scene was rocked on Tuesday when the owners of the newly opened Dapper Squirrel announced it would close. Speaking of his disappointment, co-owner Michael Kilkie confirmed the news with the Standard, saying the restaurant was to shut with immediate effect. That leaves 26 workers, nine full-time, without a job and the future of the venue hanging in the balance. Michael said on Tuesday morning: “We’ve just told the manager and head chef – we’ll close straight away.
It remains one of the most tragic evenings in Scottish football history. The night a giant of the game Jock Stein was taken, as the Daily Record reported, "in the very moment of his latest triumph" as he and his players moved to the verge of World Cup qualification. Never before has triumph been so sickeningly turned to despair for the Scottish national football side and the Tartan Army.
Kevin Clancy will take charge of this weekend's Scottish Cup cracker between Hearts and Hibs. The Edinburgh derby is the tie of the fourth round as both sides return to competitive action after a three-week winter break. And Clancy has been given the honour of refereeing the match, his 21st game of the season. The 34-year-old whistler angered Hearts boss Craig Levein the last time he officiated a Jambos game after sending off 16-year-old Harry Cochrane against St Johnstone.
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".
