Two horrific domestic assaults which shocked a Teesside judge have put a vicious assailant behind bars for more than 11 years. Allan Bogan, 37, left his partner covered in bruises and needing emergency surgery. First he attacked her in her Middlesbrough home for no reason on May 2 last year. He punched her and hit her to the head with a metal bar and a phone, Teesside Crown Court heard. Then he suffocated her to the point of unconsciousness, said prosecutor Paul Rooney.
A paramedic and ex-military man caught with 820 images of child abuse said he downloaded the pictures after he became “desensitised” to adult pornography. Alan Leyshon, 62, had the images on a laptop and a tablet at the home where he lived alone, Teesside Crown Court heard today. They mainly depicted girls aged between three and 10, with 76 images at the most serious level in law, including 60 videos, said prosecutor Emma Atkinson. He told police: “I don’t know why I did it. I was stupid.
A hero shopkeeper fought off a hooded knife-wielding robber who was desperate for cigarettes for his sick 80-a-day smoker mum, a court heard. A judge said bosses of Andrea Rose, who was working alone at the time, should be proud after she sent 53-year-old Andrew Martin packing. The brave employee then followed the crook and snapped a photo of him, helping to identify him as the culprit. Penniless Martin later told police he didn’t know who was more scared during the confrontation - him or her.
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".
