A retired Perth headmaster yesterday set off on a 160-mile sponsored walk linking nine golf clubs in a bid to raise a day’s operational costs for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA). Mike Beale (70), a founding trustee and vice-chairman of the life-saving airborne charity, initially hoped to drive home £7000 in support for his fundraiser as he makes his way from Murrayshall near Perth to Rosemarkie on the Black Isle – but has already netted £7022.
A councillor has called for a review after health bosses announced the temporary closure of a key medical facility in a Perthshire town. NHS Tayside revealed on Friday last week that Crieff’s Minor Injury and Illness Unit (MIIU) would be closed until 9am on Monday, July 17.
Perth’s Family Race Day on Sunday is already written in to the calendar of many families throughout Perthshire if advance sales are anything to go by. The racecourse team is working hard to ensure both the track and enclosures are in pristine condition ahead of another well-attended event. The Mackie’s of Scotland Summer Series continues into the school holidays with this popular Sunday meeting, which represents the second of just three weekend fixtures in Perth’s 2017 season.
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".
