The floorboards are being dug up at Buckingham Palace - and they're revealing some hidden treasures. Cigarette packs and newspaper cuttings dating back more than a century are among the items unearthed. The Palace, in London, is being refurbished at a cost of £369million to the taxpayer. It marks the first time the floorboards have been ripped open in DECADES. The revamp comes amid fears of potential fires due to old wiring and boilers.
A minibus driver saved the lives of his 15 passengers thanks to his quick-thinking as boulders began crashing down in front of him. The terrifying landslide was caught on his dashcam as he drove along a road in south west China. Long Hongjun, a bus driver for more than 20 years, spotted two small fallen stones on the road ahead when he was driving the shuttle bus from Qingpian Village. He slowed down the van intending to check what had happened - and it was lucky for him that he did.
A brave pilot managed to land his passenger plane while being tossed sideways by 70mph winds before the wheels hit the Tarmac. Around 70 passengers and crew were on board the Eurowings flight as it approached Amsterdam's Schipol Airport yesterday. Terrifying footage shows the plane fighting through the same 70mph winds that had battered Britain and moved on to attack Europe as Storm David took hold.
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".
