AN air rage passenger forced a flight to turn around and land again when he threatened to "p*** on the floor" — after he was told he could not use the toilet. Kieran Tabberner became "aggressive and abusive" just ten minutes after a flight from Birmingham to Amsterdam took off. He directed his anger at air stewardess Robyn Pascoe, who was left so traumatised that she later quit her job of seven years over anxiety.
A HEARTWARMING campaign to find an autistic boy's favourite baby cup has sparked a global project to find lost treasured items for kids. Last year, Ben Carter was devastated when his favourite Tommee Tippee cup — which had a design that had been discontinued — became worn out. Dad Marc from Torrington, North Devon, posted an appeal on Twitter asking users if they could "please help me find a new cup for Ben", who refused to drink from anything else and ended up in A&E.
A BODYBUILDER and aspiring pro wrestler may have died after using diabetics' insulin to gain muscle, an inquest heard. Ghent Wakefield was found dead at home in Tunstall, Staffs in December last year when he failed to respond to calls. An inquest into the 35-year-old's death heard how his dreams of becoming a WWE wrestler in the US had been destroyed after he tore his biceps.
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".
