Bungling council workers have been blasted by residents after they only resurfaced the middle of a road. Homeowners were even forced to move their cars to allow the work to be completed but were left baffled when only half their street was repaired. Leicester City Council carried out the work on Stretton Road in the West End area of the city on Thursday morning.
A petrolhead has spent thousands converting a VW campervan into a PUB after finding himself too busy at work to get down his local often enough. It comes complete with an optical bar, pub seating and even a dart board. It also feature beer taps, wine racks, disco lights and a bell to ring for service. The pub - named the "The Dub Inn" as a play on the Volkswagen nickname "Vdubs" - also has a cooler and 240-volt power supply so you can pull a Strongbow or Carling.
A mum was horrified to discover a sharp chunk of metal in her son's Heinz baby food. Rachel Rothwell, 25, made the shocking discovery as she was feeding 11-month-old Riley some vegetable and chicken casserole puree. The mum-of-five bought the item from an Asda store in Arnold, Notts., while it was on offer for £4 for six packets last week. But she said when she squeezed the puree out into a bowl and onto a spoon to feed to her son, she spotted the small 2mm piece of metal at the last second.
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".
