THE frenetic chaos of an Italian motorway was the unlikely spot where Zoey Clark was finally able to relax. These congested, tollbooth-laden ‘autostrade’ are not for the faint-hearted – the 22-year-old was glad to only be a passenger while her partner drove – but they helped join up a fortnight’s holiday that took her from Milan to Venice and then down to Rome. After all her endeavours over the past 12 months, both professional and personally, it served as a much-needed and well-deserved rest.
PARTICK THISTLE defender Niall Keown has sprung to the defence of Scottish football after former Celtic striker Craig Bellamy claimed that nobody in England cares about the game up here. Keown moved north at the start of the year to join Alan Archibald’s men and enjoyed his initial loan spell from Reading so much that he opted to make his stay permanent in the summer.
PARTICK THISTLE manager Alan Archibald wants his players to take advantage of a run of winnable games – knowing nasty November is just around the corner. Four of Thistle’s next six games are at Firhill as the Jags look to build on two strong performances against Rangers and get their first win of the season against Hearts tomorrow.
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".
