A vandalism attack on a London meat-free restaurant has left staff with a bad taste in their mouths. Only two days after its soft-launch, blue text that read "I [heart symbol] meat" was plastered beneath the drive-thru sign at Globally Local's second location in London. "It sucks," said James McInnes, founder of the London's vegan food hub. "It hurts to have someone attack you like that so directly."
A 24-year-old man will be sentenced today for his role in a head-on collision last November that killed a London woman. Jinghao Zhou pleaded guilty in May to impaired driving after he went through a red light at Richmond Street, travelling 188 kilometres an hour, before slamming into a car near Sunningdale Road. Gloria Chivers, 60, was killed. She was delivering The London Free Press. Zhou's alcohol levels showed more than double the legal limit, court heart.
Daina Graves and her family were among hundreds enjoying carnival rides and fair food at Victoria Park on the weekend. The fun ended quickly after her husband spotted a used syringe near their picnic table. "[There are] innocent children running and playing, not having a care in the world and now you have to say no you can't play there, let's look first," she said. Graves snapped a photo of her husband carrying the dirty syringe in one hand while holding the hand of their two-year-old.
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".
