A man dedicated five years of his life and thousands of pounds into renovating his dream yacht. And then it sank, literally within minutes. Richard Ogilvy bought the dilapidated WWII boat 10 years ago – but only began renovating it in 2013. The 75-year-old worked up to eight hours a day – a full working week – ripping off the fibreglass deck, treating the rotten wood and getting the engine running on the 40ft boat.
A man has been arrested after allegedly slitting a woman’s throat in a busy shopping centre car park this morning. Police rushed to the scene near an Odeon cinema at Dockside outlet centre in Chatham, Kent, following reports of a ‘serious assault’. The attack is believed to be a domestic incident. The man is said to have shut his partner in his car before attacking her at around 11am. A witness said there was lots of blood and people could be heard shouting.
A mother was left ‘hysterical’ after discovering that her baby son had been circumcised without her permission. The unnamed woman from Nottingham revealed that she has been battling for authorities to take action for four years after the discovery. Speaking to the BBC, she said that on the day of the alleged incident, she had opened her son’s nappy to find him ‘covered in blood’. The child had reportedly been staying with his paternal grandparents when he was circumcised in July 2013.
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".
