The semi-final of tennis’ Swedish Open was shockingly interrupted when a man walked onto court, raised his right arm and shouted a Nazi slogan. Footage of the match between Spaniards Fernando Verdasco and David Ferrer showed a man wearing a black T-shirt wandering towards the court. The umpire was forced to halt the match mid-point as the man shouted ‘Hell Seger’ – a Swedish translation of the Nazi slogan ‘Sieg Heil’. He was pictured raising his arm in a Nazi salute.
A former charity boss who stole £1.3 million from a homeless charity and used the money to fund a ‘lavish lifestyle’ has been jailed for five years. Robert Davies spent the stolen money on boats, trips in private jets, and stays in top hotels in Japan, the USA and parts of Africa. Cardiff Crown Court heard that the 50-year-old lied to his wife by telling her the money came from bonuses from his job as head of finance for Swansea-based charity Cyrenians Cymru.
Two strong aftershocks have hit the popular tourist island of Kos a day after two people were killed by a 6.7 magnitude earthquake. Worried tourists and locals were seen running towards the centre of the town’s main square, as far away as possible from buildings, after the first aftershock. Measuring at a preliminary 4.4 magnitude, it was followed by a slightly stronger shock – preliminary 4.6 magnitude – just 16 minutes later.
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".
