The Birkenhead shop used by two paedophile brothers as a hub to exploit vulnerable teenage girls could reopen under plans submitted by a new owner. Wirral licensing chiefs will meet next week to consider whether the store, on the corner of Cole Street and Grange Road West, should be brought back into action. The bid has sparked fears it could become a hub for anti-social behaviour and led to questions over whether it should reopen after the “criminal activities” once linked to it.
The future of the Liverpool city centre bar where Sam Cook was tragically stabbed will be decided on Monday. Licensing chiefs will consider whether Empire can safely re-open following the murder. The club’s operating licence was suspended - effectively shutting down the venue - in the aftermath of the attack as police raised fears of follow-up incidents suggesting the bar was a hotspot for gangs.
Merseyside Police has no case to answer over a rescue operation which saw a woman jump from a rooftop, a force watchdog has ruled. Officers led a bid to help the woman - who had warned she would jump if anyone tried to save her - as she stumbled across the rooftops of a Litherland street. A sergeant launched a rescue effort after the female nearly fell - only to see her suffer serious injuries when she jumped as firefighters closed in on her.
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".
