An offshore workboats specialist has insisted two vessels tied up at Dundee Port are free to work. Concerns had been raised that a recent administration order on Australian energy services firm Go Marine Group would effectively impound the group’s UK-based fleet. However, Go Offshore (UK) Limited said its immediate parent company operated out of Singapore and the Australian unit was separate.
Just three words emblazoned on a placard held by a young lad in Edinburgh today. But they shouted louder to me than any of the impressive union battle cries that soared above the Battle for BiFab march on the Royal Mile. That one placard said everything that needed to be said. This was the human face of the struggle to keep the gates open at the Fife heavy engineer. Son, dad and grandad in step, fighting for the same cause. I don’t know the family and I don’t know their personal circumstances.
All hands to the pump. That was the rallying cry thrown up at administration threatened Fife heavy engineer BiFab on Monday as the workforce appraised their options in the face of almost certain calamity. Their admirable response was to stand firm and offer to work without guarantee of pay. They are hoping their gesture will give management the breathing space they need to find a way to escape the financial black hole they are currently staring into.
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".
