THREE women terrorised for years by a serial domestic abuser yesterday voiced anger and disbelief after he was spared jail. The survivors told of the abuse and violence inflicted by businessman Jamie Doak and condemned his sentence. He had beaten them, pinned them to the ground, threw phones and televisions at them and broke their bones between 2001 and 2014. Despite being found guilty at Perth Sheriff Court, Doak walked free after being sentenced to community service.
A NEW generation of enterpreneurs have revealed how they’re cashing in on good, old-fashioned honesty. Home baking, ice cream, a warm bed and even a round of golf are on sale in some of the country’s most out-of-the-way locations, thanks to business owners putting their trust in the public to pay up at unstaffed venues. In Balfron, near Glasgow, Louise Paterson makes a fresh batch of scones every morning and brings them to her honesty hut.
CONFIDENTIAL details of some of Scotland’s most vulnerable people were leaked online by an organisation meant to protect their welfare. The names, emails, phone numbers and computer addresses of around 50 people across the country were obtainable on the website of the Scottish Appropriate Adult Network (SAAN). The group works with those who are mentally impaired and need help when involved in the justice system, whether giving evidence or being interviewed by police.
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".
