A war veteran was left devastated after being snubbed on Remembrance Sunday when trying to lay a wreath. Renowned charity fundraiser Tom Gilzean, 97, expected to lay his wreath at the Stone of Remembrance at the annual remembrance ceremony at the City Chambers. However Tom, who braves all weathers in his trademark tartan trousers to fundraise for the charity on the streets of the Capital, was turned away by the Royal British Legion Scotland for not being on a list.
Pets have very much become part of the family in many Capital households and across the Lothians, but that wasn’t always the case. That growing importance is where People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals comes in – a leading UK veterinary charity providing treatment for sick and injured animals. The charity celebrates 100 years today, with the dedicated team at Edinburgh’s PDSA Pet Hospital at the heart of its Scottish operations.
THE future of Edinburgh Capitals ice hockey club has been plunged into doubt after a petition was lodged for the business to be wound up. A hearing took place yesterday to wind up Capitals Hockey Limited, whose director is Edinburgh Capitals owner Scott Neil, at The Royal Courts of Justice. It comes after a petition was presented to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs in September.
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".
