A WELL-known Worcester pub is set to be demolished, sparking outrage from locals who say it will leave their community without anywhere to enjoy a drink. People in Dines Green say they are outraged that the Coppertops, in Oldbury Road, is set to be bulldozed later this year. Two other pubs in Dines Green - the Mayflower in Grenville Road and the Drakes Drum in Tudor Way - have already been demolished to make way for houses, and pubgoers are now facing a trek to St John's just to go to the pub.
"MISLEADING" adverts warning patients not to attend Worcester's A&E unless they are suffering from a 'life-threatening emergency' have been banned by an independent regulator. NHS bosses in Worcestershire used the adverts and regularly sent out press releases to the media urging patients not to attend A&E at Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester unless they were suffering a life-threatening condition.
A DAD branded his road rage attacker a 'coward' and a 'low life' after he was beaten-up in front of his terrified daughter. Father-of-five Karl Williams says he was punched 10 or more times in the face while his hysterical daughter, just five years old, was showered with broken glass from the shattered driver's side window.
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".
