A production company filming the forthcoming Outlaw King movie has set up camp in Stirling. About 30 caravans being used by the support team rolled on to Stirling Council-owned Falleninch Field, beneath the castle, and a marquee was erected there. A council spokesman confirmed it was the base for the filming although no scenes from the film – which tells the story of Robert the Bruce – are being shot there.
Work begins next week on a 14-week project to repair a bridge seriously damaged in a road accident. Ballat Bridge was last September hit by the arm of an earthmover which was on a lorry passing beneath the structure. Scottish Water own the bridge which crosses the A81 and carries water mains running from Loch Katrine to Glasgow. The company say the A81 between Balfron Station and Ballat Crossroads will be closed from September 18 for around 14 weeks for the repairs.
A visitor to King’s Park on Saturday spoke of his shock over the industrial language and bad behaviour of some adult players involved in a football match there. The Foster’s Central League clash saw Stirling City – who play their home games at the park – defeat Possil YMCA 8-1 in a bad-tempered clash in which the Glasgow team had a man sent off. The visitor, out for an afternoon stroll with his partner, walked around the perimeter path close to where the game was taking 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 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".
