A CAMPAIGN to celebrate women who are making a real difference in their community has been launched by human rights charity Amnesty International. In support of the campaign the Advertiser wants to hear about local heroes who deserve some recognition. Amnesty wants to put them on its Suffragette Spirit Map of Britain, inspired by determined women who fought to secure the right to vote a century ago. Helping to spearhead the campaign is award-winning actress and Amnesty ambassador Juliet Stevenson.
A LAUNDRETTE blaze has resulted in an ATM being made insecure in Parkhall last night. The fire at the Duntocher Road business is understood to have taken hold just after 9pm on Tuesday evening. Police and fire teams attended and cops remain on scene this morning. Local reports claimed that the cash machine had been targeted, however the Post has confirmed the ATM was affected by the fire.
POLICE have told motorists to avoid the A82 as a snow storm causes wide-spread disruption across Dumbarton and the Vale. The Met Office has issued a yellow “be aware” warning of snow and ice which covers much of Scotland, the Midlands and northern England. The warning, valid from 6am until 6pm today, predicts snow on higher routes and says that rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, particularly across Scotland, following a very cold night.
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".
