A tree surgeon hailed a hero for rescuing a family from flood waters felled a man with a single punch in a Midland bar, causing him to suffer a fractured skull. After initially claiming he had acted in self-defence, George Lucas pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to inflicting grievous bodily harm. The 32-year-old, of Lutterworth Road, Shawell, near Lutterworth, was sentenced to 12 months in prison suspended for two years and ordered to do 180 hours of unpaid work.
Frankie Gavin , a man whose immense talent has been railroaded in a mire of weight-making struggles and out-of-ring distractions, is set for a new beginning. The former world amateur champ and pro British welterweight titleholder has signed a deal with Redditch based BWI Promotions. And rumours abound that the 32-year-old is poised to fight for a version of the world welter crown. I have been informed from insiders the big fight is a near certainty.
Birmingham super-flyweight Don Broadhurst claimed a 60-55 points victory over Anwar Alfadi on Saturday night as the curtain came down on his career, writes Andi Purewal. Fighting on a Tommy Owens promotion at Villa Park, the home of his boyhood football club, for the last time, Broadhurst provided a fairytale finish to a career that, at times, has been anything but a fairytale. Injuries have blighted the 33-year-old’s quest for top titles.
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".
