For a few weeks every year many people wear a poppy – but conflict doesn’t respect the calendar. Our Armed Forces serve 365 days a year – and live with the aftermath for life. Poppyscotland is proud of their iconic Scottish Poppy Appeal – but today they begin a major drive urging people to go the extra mile and donate all year round. The charity helps ensure those who served, are still serving, and their families, receive the care they urgently need.
Star Wars superfan Keith Armour will get an award from the Prime Minister for his fundraising efforts. The movie-obsessed dad has raised more than £110,000 for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland with his annual Capital Sci-Fi Con in Edinburgh. He will be presented with the Points of Life award by Theresa May on Tuesday to recognise his outstanding volunteer work. Keith, who has a two-year-old daughter Leah, was determined to help others after going through a tough time.
PRINCESS Diana famously touched hearts with her empathy towards sick children and now, 20 years after her death, her legacy endures with three ‘Diana Children’s Nurses’ supporting terminally ill youngsters across Scotland. Named in her honour and funded by the Government to commemorate Diana’s life and work, these nurses work with CHAS, Children’s Hospices Across Scotland, to ease the burden for families in their darkest hours.
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".
