A road safety campaign to reduce injuries and deaths as a result of vehicles passing too close to horses is to be launched this week by Police Scotland, with support from the British Horse Society and Glasgow City Council. The ‘Lose the Blinkers’ campaign is aimed at all road users, with particular emphasis on the urban fringes of large towns and cities, where many horse riders stable their horses, and exercise them in the evenings and at weekends.
Police have confirmed the identity of a man who died following a disturbance in the west of the city during the early hours of Sunday 22nd October. He was Mark Squires from Edinburgh. The 44-year-old sustained a number of serious injuries during an attack, which took place in a lane at the side of the Longstone Inn pub, leading to Stenhouse Mill Lane. His death is being treated as murder and inquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible.
Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery at a city-centre pub which took place around 12.45 a.m. this morning at the Doctors Bar on Forrest Road. A 43-year-old man was working within the premises and had gone outside briefly when he was confronted by two men as he re-entered. The pair then threatened the staff member before stealing a four-figure sum of cash and entering a black cab at the corner of Forrest Road and Teviot Place.
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".
