This family will enjoy an extra special Christmas this year following the birth of a bumper baby boy who became the largest delivered at the hospital in a decade. Staff at Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby gasped in disbelief when Brodey Young was born on Tuesday morning at 12lbs and 13oz. Just shy of the average weight of a bowling ball, Brodey is the heaviest baby born at hospital for the past ten years and among the biggest ever delivered there.
These fascinating greeting cards dating as far back as the 19th century once illustrated an idyllic view of Christmas in Britain - but would now surely be slammed as politically incorrect today. The cards - believed to have been lost in a fire until they were unearthed from a house eight years ago - appear to evoke Christmas spirit by offering a message of peace and goodwill to all men and women.
A drug dealer leapt from a window naked to escape police after his £1.7 million criminal empire was exposed. Mohammed Asif, 30, was arrested wearing no clothes as he tried to flee from officers who were raiding his house in Smethwick, West Midlands. A search of his property uncovered his criminal proceeds with Class A drugs, scales, tens of thousands of pounds in cash and ammunition seized from the home.
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".
