Being forced to remain in hospital, unable to return home as there is no one to assist you getting dressed in the morning or help you to prepare meals is a situation being faced by some of the most elderly and vulnerable in our communities. A chronic shortage of carers, coupled with a growing older population, means the demands for homecarers has never been greater.
The new owners of Callendar Square have promised to breathe new life into the shopping centre. London-based Cygnet Properties and Leisure plc were first linked with the building last month having reportedly purchased it from Ellandi in a £1 million deal. Since then speculation about its future has been growing but this week brothers Rahim and Karim Virani, both directors with Cygnet, were in town to meet tenants and confirm their commitment to keep the building as a shopping complex.
The owners of a popular Falkirk hair salon have decided to sell up and begin a new adventure. Graeme and Jackie Hamilton have been running Couper & Co for over 22 years, the last 12 from their landmark building in Princes Street. But now they are leaving town and heading east. With their three daughters grown up and scattered around the globe – in Australia, Sweden and London – the couple decided the time was right for them to make some changes.
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".
