A BURGLAR jumped out of an upstairs window after a householder caught him in the act. The offender landed on a flat roof below before making off on a bicycle following the incident in Ensbury Park Road, Bournemouth. Police have now appealed for witnesses after the burglary at 8.20am on Tuesday September 19. They said the victim, a man in his 20s, heard a noise in an upstairs bedroom. He went to investigate and discovered another man in his house.
A POOLE woman who survived the full force of Hurricane Irma has returned to Dorset from her new home in the devastated British Virgin Islands (BVI). Kay Smith told how she and two friends cowered in a laundry room as the hurricane ripped the roof off her apartment and destroyed all her possessions. The 41-year-old is currently staying with her mother in Canford Cliffs and is now urging members of the public to support those who remain on the islands.
COMPLAINTS against Dorset Police rose by three per cent to 506 in the last financial year, latest figures have revealed. Statistics released by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) also show that a quarter of the complaints were investigated by the force itself with 53 per cent dealt with through local resolution. The IPCC said police forces across England and Wales are inconsistent in their approach to handling complaints and revealed the system will change from next year.
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".
