A director of a women's prison has been sacked after horrific footage emerged of cells infested with hundreds of rats. Inmates at Porto Velho jail in north Brazil complained they had been bitten and attacked by violent rodents as prison staff highlighted the atrocious conditions following an inspection. The damning video, released on Wednesday, caused uproar and forced authorities to hurriedly transfer the women to a newly-built jail, several months before the complex was due to be opened.
This is the extraordinary moment a motorcyclist is sent flying by a speeding car - and then calls his own ambulance while still on the roof. CCTV footage shows the yellow car slamming into the man and destroying his motorbike, but remarkably he managed to cling to the roof as it sped away. Pictures taken by eyewitnesses show the despatch rider, Guilherme Souza de Oliveira, 28, lying injured on top of a yellow Volkswagen and calling for help.
Two mums have revealed fears their nine-month-old sons were SWAPPED at birth in a hospital mix-up - after DNA tests showed the babies were not their biological children. The Brazilian women believe they were handed the wrong boys despite them wearing identity bracelets bearing their names. A chance meeting between the pair at a health clinic led to fears of the shocking error - but the hospital has denied any wrongdoing.
@ShaoDowMusic Thank you my darling son. I'm fortunate enough have sons that believe every day is their mum's day and treat her with the respect and the love she deserves! So while the gesture is welcome the day is superfluous to my needs
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".
