An eagle-eyed mum may have saved her baby daughter's life after she correctly recognised marks and bruises on her skin - as signs of leukaemia . Laura Handley was reading a news story about tragic schoolboy James O'Mara who died just a week after being diagnosed with blood cancer. Laura, 29, realised her one-year-old daughter Tazmin had the same marks on her skin and took the tot to her GP who ordered a bone marrow biopsy.
The family of a woman who was killed by a flesh-eating virus has hit out at the hospital that sent her home with a 'sprained wrist'. Katie Widdowson, 24, went to hospital in agonising pain after she hurt her left wrist on New Year's Day. She had woken up that morning and had sex with her boyfriend Dean Smith, who had tied her up as part of a sex game. Doctors initially dismissed her concerns, saying she had suffered a sprained wrist as a result of the game and sent her home with painkillers.
A Rolls Royce boss Peeping Tom was a "dirty old man" after admitting setting up a spy camera in a bathroom to watch a woman in the shower, a disgusted judge said. Richard Croft, 49, placed the 50p-sized device between towels in the bathroom of his victim's home, but she discovered it when she went to get dry. The memory card of the camera contained an image of Croft appearing to stand near the shower as if to check it was in focus.
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".
