The father of a 13-year-old schoolboy who was repeatedly kicked in the head by a racist gang claims he thinks they 'intended to kill' his son. The brutal incident alleged to involve older teens is being investigated by police as a race hate attack. The Manchester Evening News reports that six white youths circled their younger victim in a park before asking him: ‘Are you a P***?’. They then brutally battered the boy.
Police hunting thugs who repeatedly kicked a 13-year-old boy in the head in a brutal ‘race-hate’ attack have made an arrest. Six white youths reportedly surrounded the victim in a north Manchester park before asking him ‘Are you a P...?’ then battered him. Deputy Mayor Bev Hughes has since described the attack as ‘appalling’. She spoke as GMP confirmed on Tuesday that a 12-year-old boy had been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated assault.
A social housing provider is to remove cladding from another five of its high-rise blocks in Salford, bringing the number of affected buildings in the city - so far - to 17. Salix Homes announced earlier this week it was planning to remove cladding from Canon Hussey Court, Arthur Millwood Court and Black Friar Court. Now bosses have ordered engineers to remove panelling at the 17-storey Sycamore, Mulberry, and Magnolia Courts on Pendleton’s Broadway Walk, which were given a £7m revamp last year.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
