Yoga teacher Lindsey Porter has helped create a unique calendar – and raised money for a vital charity. Along with Emma Frame from Glasgow, Braes mum Lindsey wanted to highlight the benefits yoga can bring to bodies and minds. They encouraged 11 other teachers from across Scotland to take part in a range of poses and turned them into a calendar to raise £2200 for the Scottish Association for Mental Health.
More closures are hitting Falkirk’s already beleaguered town centre with two more chains announcing they are pulling out. Semichem will close on February 28 while, despite doubling their locations across the UK, Pep&Co has revealed it will be shutting its store in the Howgate shopping centre. Semichem has been in Falkirk for a number of years but a spokesperson said that the store had been “financially challenged” for some time and a continued decline in footfall had led to the decision to close.
A historic Jacobite victory will be marked with two special events this weekend. As work is about to begin on a new pathway where history lovers can follow in the steps of the Scottish soldiers who took part in the 1746 Battle of Falkirk Muir, a tour of the site will take place at Bantaskine Park. Tomorrow’s (Saturday) inaugural battlefield walk is from 1.30pm-3.15pm and will be led by Falkirk historian Geoff Bailey.
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".
