Being Batty About Bats Earns Islanders National AwardThe Isle of Wight Bat Hospital has won a national award for its work. For 20 years, since their son first found an injured bat, Donna and Graham Street have been rescuing the tiny animals with a big reputation. Their efforts have bagged them the Pete Guest award for 2017, which is handed to individuals who have made an outstanding practical contribution to bat conservation. Comments comments
Bags, designed especially for the store as part of a competition, include the phrase “Isle Of White”. The design had to reflect the Island’s key landmarks, as well as what the children liked best about their home. The winning image was chosen from over 300 entries and was created by brothers Ciaran and Ryan Peterson, ten and eight. Their proud mum says the blunder was not down to them – the words “Isle of White” was added by Asda later. The bags for life were being handed out at the store earlier.
All of Tampa Bay breathed a sigh of relief when Hurricane Charley changed track before making landfall in Florida on August 13, 2004. Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and other towns, however, suddenly found themselves facing the full brunt of Charley's devastating power. By the time it had made its way across Florida, Charley had left over $13 billion worth of damage in its wake. The Times dispatched a small army of photographers and reporters to the area. Here is what they found.
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".
