A motorist who mounted a pavement and killed a four-year-old boy has won an appeal against a lifetime driving ban. Cory Ciesielski was knocked down as he walked with his 14-year-old brother Daniel in Cartland Road, Stirchley, in April 2006. The youngsters had been visiting their father in Birmingham and were on their way to play football in a park. Driver Trevor Clarke, aged 60 and from Yardley, was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving in 2008.
West Midlands Police is trying to find photographs of 29 Birmingham-based officers who died on duty between 1855 and 1964. The appeal is being made by the force’s history team, who are bringing together a digital roll of honour to pay tribute to fallen officers. The team has already managed to secure images of every West Midlands officer, but are now trying to find images of ex Birmingham City and Birmingham Parks officers who died before 1974.
The case against a teenager accused of murdering a man at a house party in Birmingham has been dropped because of “insufficient evidence.”Detectives launched a murder hunt after Joel Richards, 20, arrived at Birmingham’s City Hospital with multiple stab wounds in the early hours of Sunday May 28. He died shortly afterwards, having suffered a fatal stab wound to the chest.
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".
