At a time when some people are falling into bed following weekend revelry, Alistair Corbett can be found quietly donning his walking gear before heading to the mountains. The self-taught landscape photographer is on a mission to summit the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons - Penyfan - in time to capture the sunrise. He has taken hundreds of photographs of the national park over the last six or seven years. But this is a rare occasion as his canvas is steeped with snow.
A large sinkhole has appeared on a rugby field in the Swansea Valley. The hole, near the touchline of the main rugby pitch belonging to Morriston RFC in Heol Gwernen in Cwmrhydyceirw, has now been fenced off and is being investigated by the Coal Authority. Although some people on social media were speculating that the hole resulted from the earthquake which hit the area on Saturday, it is thought to have appeared on the Wednesday before.
Something stirred deep below the surface of a small village in the Upper Swansea Valley on Saturday afternoon which quite literally shook the world. According to the British Geological Survey (BGS), at 2.31pm on Saturday tectonic movements in the Earth’s crust, 7km below Cwmllynfell, took place resulting in an earthquake which measured 4.4 on the Richter scale. But why did it happen, and will there be more to come? The BGS has the answers.
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".
