A COLOURFUL parade of costumes from around the world will be at the centre of a whirlwind of fashion at an upcoming show. The community has worked together to organise the Building Bridges event, taking place at Darlington’s Majestic Theatre next month. Students from Darlington College and Corporation Road Primary School, along with representatives from the emergency services, will be taking to the catwalk in an explosion of colour on Wednesday, October 11.
THERE were queues down the street as people waited to be tattooed at a charity event inspired by a terminally ill North-East man. The Heavy Duty tattoo studio raised £4,380.44 with a quirky fundraiser that saw around 70 people inked with designs chosen by artists who travelled from across the country to take part. All proceeds will be donated to TrekStock, a cancer charity nominated by Darlington man Matt Hadden, a friend of the Heavy Duty team.
A GIANT wooden horse will bring the streets to a standstill when it is paraded through Teesside this weekend. The Gresham horse, a five metre tall wooden structure on wheels, will make its first outing on Sunday. Throughout the summer, a diverse group of people from the Gresham area of Middlesbrough and its surroundings worked together at mima to create the striking creature. Portuguese artist Isabel Lima spearheaded the initiative, which forms part of her Broken Chords Can Sing a Little project.
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".
