The slums were cleared only to be replaced by a doomed 1960s housing experiment and flawed new homes. Hulme’s infamous Crescents survived for 30 years before they too were ripped down. Next came red-bricked houses with gardens and low rise flats. And through it all lived the real fabric of the community - the residents. Now their story is to be told in a new film, which has been almost two years in the making.
Salford’s only running track has been closed after vandals cut an electricity supply. The council shut the Cleavley Track at Winton, Eccles, after cables were damaged. As the nights draw in it means there is no electricity for flood lighting around the track. But parents claim the council has been slow to take action and get the damage repaired. A meeting was taking place today between council officers, and Electricity North West to try and resolve the situation so the track can be re-opened.
Fears are growing for a 12-year-old girl who has been missing overnight. Aaliyah Seerey was reported missing at 6.30am today (September 22) after last being seen at her home in Leigh at around 10.30pm on Thursday. She's not been seen or heard from since then and both her family and officers are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare. It’s not known what she is wearing but she is Asian, around 5ft 3in tall, of medium build and has dark brown hair.
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".
