Having dedicated over 40 years to running a senior citizens’ club in north Belfast, Norman Lewis will be heartbroken when the club holds its final get together next month. The lives of Norman and his wife Lily had revolved around Midland Senior Citizens’ Club, but after Lily’s death last year and with the years catching up with Norman – now 86 – his family and friends have advised him that the time has come to close down the club.
The man who was shot dead in front of his partner and young child in west Belfast last night has been described as a “cheerful guy” who was “always up for a laugh”. Police said yesterday they have not yet been able to establish a motive for the murder of Raymond Johnston. The 28-year-old was murdered in his home in Glenbawn Avenue at 8pm on Tuesday night.
The principal of Harryville Primary School where Kayden Fleck had been a P1 pupil has said his death will not sink in until school resumes and staff and pupils see his empty desk. The five-year-old, described by his parents as a “happy-go-lucky” boy, died on Saturday after he fell into the River Braid near the Ecos Centre in Ballymena. Harryville principal Lesley Meikle said Kayden and his twin brother Jayden were an “adorable presence as they bounced around the school together”.
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".
