Trains to and from Glasgow Central look set to be disrupted until at least 6.30pm thanks to a fault at Pollokshields East station. The fault has caused chaos on Glasgow lines all day, following the vandalism of electric cables at the southside station. The problem has meant widespread disruption to services including Queen’s Park, Crosshill, Mount Florida and Cathcart, with some passengers reporting being stuck on trains for up to three hours.
Police are on the hunt for a man who seriously assaulted a pedestrian who walked in front of his car. The 20-year-old victim was in Gordon Street, at the entrance of Central Station, around 8.30pm on Sunday (September 17) when he accidentally walked in front of a black car, causing the driver to brake suddenly. The young man chapped the window of the car - described by police as a black, luxury saloon-style vehicle - which resulted in the driver getting out.
Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel has unveiled a substantial - and sparkly - makeover for one of its star attractions. The railway hotel’s Champagne Central bar has undergone a lavish refurbishment with new decor, seating areas, exclusive booths, marble tables and an extended bar. The champagne and gin offerings remain, along with a new cocktail list - and you can still order bar food or a special occasion champagne afternoon tea.
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".
