A mum fighting a brain tumour has revealed how she has been forced to break the law to import the cannabis that she believes has kept her alive. Caroline Burns was diagnosed with brain cancer but started sending for cannabis oil as a last resort when other treatments failed. Doctors suggested she might have only three months to live but her tumour has shrunk since she started taking the drug. She said: “I probably wouldn’t be here to see this Christmas without cannabis.
ONCE they were grainy black and white photos that left parents-to-be struggling to make out much of their baby. But the latest developments in ante-natal scans means parents are able to take a sneak peak at their babies’ secret lives in the months before they are born. And fascinatingly, it appears these scans can offer an insight into the baby’s future habits, mannerisms and personality.
HE stands just 10in tall but plucky little Cairn terrier Oran has bagged almost 40 Munros. Chris Nelson’s pet dog braves sub-zero temperatures to scamper to the summit of some of Scotland’s most iconic hills. He scales peaks of more than 3000 feet for the love of Chris’s girlfriend Kirsty Young who has cystic fibrosis. Owner and dog are attempting to scale Scotland’s all of 282 Munros in less than three years to fundraise for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
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".
