Britain's top law enforcement body today dashed hopes of a major purge on Russian oligarchs living in London on criminal profits by warning that only “a small number” will be targeted under new powers. The National Crime Agency said it had “scoped” around 50 potential “unexplained wealth order” cases in which tycoons could be required to prove the source of their cash or face losing their assets. It expected to bring a “significant” number of these to court over the next two years.
John Worboys was approved for release from prison despite keeping “new me” diaries in which he wrote about the “natural, primal instinct” in being attracted to scantily clad women, the High Court has been told. Barrister Phillippa Kaufmann QC, representing two of his victims, said the black cab rapist’s diaries also referred to “young highly sexed women”.
The number of children being groomed in the Islamic State “death cult” is one of Britain’s “great challenges” and more will have to be removed from their families, the Justice Secretary said today. David Gauke said manipulative parents were trying to brainwash their sons and daughters, adding: “Society has got the right to say that there are some environments that are not safe.”Those who groomed their children “in pursuit of a radical agenda” could not be left in charge of families, he said.
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".
