The 'bucket bomber' who planted an explosive device on a District Line tube train has been convicted of attempted murder. Justice Haddon-Cave said there was “overwhelming evidence” in the case which led to Ahmed Hassan's conviction, according to The Guardian. When his conviction was read out Hassan did not react but he kept his head down. The 18-year-old had admitted to creating the bomb, however he'd demied attempted murder, telling the court he was “very bored, very depressed, very confused."
As a United fan, this is why I want Manchester City to beat LiverpoolBack in 2014, when Liverpool and Manchester City were duking it out for the Premier League title, Gary Neville said that picking a winner was “like having a choice of two blokes to nick your wife.”Four years on, ‘Red Nev’s’ quip seems just as fitting after today’s Champions League draw.
Saira Khan has said it's nonsense to suggest that we should ploughing billions of pounds into teaching English to immigrants. Our host was speaking after the Government unveiled a £50m Integrated Communities Strategy, with the aim of helping immigrants with the language. Speaking on Drive with Eamonn Holmes, Saira said we should "give that money to the National Health Service," as immigrants should want to learn the language themselves with no government help.
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".
