Furious shoppers have been hit with £90 fines after falling foul of Lidl's new high-tech parking system. The budget chain has come under fire after installing cameras to monitor vehicle registration plates as they enter the car park in a bid to stop non-customers from using the spaces. Shoppers are then required to scan their receipts at a machine inside the store before they leave at the Lidl in Witney, Oxfordshire. Anyone who forgets to scan their receipt is left facing an automatic £90 fine.
A jealous husband who murdered his wife with an axe after convincing himself she was having an affair has been jailed for life. Norbert Chikerema was found sitting in his parked car next to the body of his brutally murdered wife, on a Lidl supermarket car-park in Tile Cross, Birmingham, on January 30, the Crown Prosecution Service said. Mother-of-four Nyasha Kahari, 35, had suffered catastrophic head injuries, with 30 separate wounds to her head and neck, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
One of the crew members on the missing Argentinian submarine reportedly warned her family that there had been issues on board, just days before it vanished. The ARA San Juan was sailing from Ushuaia to Mar del Plata when it disappeared with 44 crewmembers on board, including 35-year-old weapons officer Eliana Krawczyk, who is the country's first female submariner. Ms Krawczyk's brother has since revealed that she called the family before they set off and told them there was a mechanical problem.
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".
