A 5-0 hammering came England’s way the last time they toured Australia, but wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow is adamant unfinished business is a thing of the past as they prepare to go Down Under this winter. The Yorkshireman was an unfortunate witness to the mauling of 2013-14, replacing Matt Prior for the fourth and fifth Tests in a series that had already been well and truly lost. That may be enough to leave any player permanently scarred, but Bairstow is one to think differently.
“It’s not long ago this was a League Two game,’’ mused boss Craig Harrison ahead of Hartlepool United’s game at Leyton Orient today. The less said about Easter Monday 2017 the better. The insipid display, as Pools slipped to second bottom of the Football League as good consigned them to relegation with the Os. They still had three games to go, but the nature of their performance, uninspired by the most uninspiring of managers, said it all.
CRAIG HARRISON is looking to add a new striker to his Hartlepool United ranks. Pools were largely dominant at Wrexham in midweek, but were unable to convert their best chances into goals. Defensively, Pools have eradicated the mistakes which cost them at the start of the season, and have kept three clean sheets in four unbeaten games. But Harrison is now turning his attentions to the other end. “It’s clear at this moment in time we are missing something in front of goal,’’ he mused.
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".
