The smoking ban in prisons has made air quality WORSE, a report has revealed. The findings heap embarrassment on prison chiefs, who have trumpeted the health benefits of outlawing cigs at all the jails in England and Wales. An official report found prisoners are breathing in more polluted air since the ban because so many cons have turned to so-called “Frankenstein fags” – contraband cigs made from Bible pages, nicotine patches and tea leaves.
A Lotto-winning couple have splashed out on Sir Tom Jones' former house - and it cost a hefty £4million. The manor house was once owned by the Welsh singing legend, and it was co-owned by fellow singer Engelbert Humperdinck. Now, the property has been picked up by Dave and Angela Dawes who won more than £100million on the Euromillions, in 2011.
A prison has landed in hot water with watchdogs – over a lags’ tea ban. And another nick has been carpeted for giving inmates too much cake. Prison inspectors rapped bosses at Cookham Wood youth jail in Rochester, Kent, for punishing poor behaviour by stopping convicts making a cuppa. And it blasted Category C Channings Wood in Newton Abbot, Devon, for the unhealthy food they dished up to inmates. Its report said the jail had used a budget rise to buy treats such as chocolate cake and doughnuts.
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".
