A burglar with 100 crimes on his record has been blasted by a judge for the money he cost the taxpayer in legal fees and prison stays. With a rap sheet in triple figures at just 32, James Garbutt embarked on a crime spree including burglaries, fraud and tearing around the streets of Teesside at almost 100mph. Judge Sean Morris told him: “I wonder if you’ve ever paused to consider what you’ve cost the country in representation of you. “All that money could have been spent on better things.
A former drugs kingpin has been banned from using Snapchat in a tough court order aimed at stopping him returning to his criminal ways. Christopher Paul Rogers, 39, was barred from running apps, such as the popular social media platform Snapchat, which automatically deletes or self-destructs messages. He is allowed to have only one mobile phone, SIM card and computer, cash under £1,000, and electronic storage devices up to 8Gb under the “Draconian” order.
A prolific offender with a £400-a-week drug habit who tried to stamp on a 65-year-old man’s face was jailed as the courts’ patience finally ran out. Stephen Butters, 28, waded in when he saw his girlfriend arguing with the pensioner. The older man had got off a bus on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough and was heading home from the pub when the female beggar asked him for money at about 9.45pm on May 5. When he told her to go away, she said she hoped he would die of cancer.
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".
