A police investigation is under way after a homeless couple were beaten and threatened with rape in BroadstairsThe brutal attack on Tina Moore and Thomas Mason at around 4am on Tuesday last week (November 28) is believed to have resulted in the death of their unborn child. The pair were sleeping rough in a tent in Pierremont Park at the timeA Kent Police spokesman confirmed they were investigating it as an assault and said three people were arrested.
The leaders of right activist group Britain First will stand trial in January accused of inciting religious hatred in Kent. Paul Golding and his deputy Jayda Fransen were arrested in May last year after the pair campaigned in Canterbury and Ramsgate. Their activities were linked to what was then the ongoing trial of four men who raped a 16-year-old girl in a flat above the 555 Pizza takeaway in Ramsgate.
Dozens of bus services across Kent could be axed in the new year. The county council says it needs to save £4 million by ending its subsidy of services on 78 routes. These services may not be the most popular but they are a vital lifeline for many. That means schoolchildren, the elderly, people who can't afford to drive and those medically unable to do so. These cuts would bring a new burden on the parents, the sons and daughters and the neighbours who are forced to step in to bridge the gap.
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".
