A British man posed as teenage American dance sensation Madison Haschak in order to incite young girls in the US to indulge in sexual acts online for him. Lewis Edwards, 18, from Wrexham, north Wales, set up a false Facebook profile in the dancer's name and used her pictures in order to persuade girls aged between 10 and 12 to carry out sexual acts on themselves while he watched on a webcam.
Prince Harry and his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle are to ask the Archbishop of Canterbury for his blessing for a church wedding. And it is understood that Archbishop Justin Welby has 'no objections', meaning a royal wedding could take place at Westminster Abbey in a matter of months. But the Prince would still require permission from the Queen and it is believed the Archbishop would need to provide a special licence for any potential nuptials.
These fascinating images show the moment a tiny duckling is plucked from its nest by a hungry heron while its desperate mother helplessly chases after them. Christian Rawson spotted the heron at Adel Dam Nature Reserve outside Leeds, Yorks, and trained his camera on it because he thought it was poised to catch a fish. But the 52-year-old was left stunned when the giant bird dive-bombed a three-week-old mandarin duckling, seized it in its beak and made a swift getaway.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
