ANDY Murray’s plans for a gym and indoor pool at his luxury new home have been blocked. His proposals did not fit in with the surrounding area and breached rules, council chiefs ruled. The decision is likely to further delay building work at the tennis star’s £3million property near Leatherhead, Surrey. Murray and wife Kim, both 30, have yet to move in with their two kids. They have appealed against Mole Valley district council’s decision, which also blocked a sauna and massage room.
Estate agent Yaseen Killick, 29, paid £6,000 ($AU10,000) for the VW Golf only for it to break down within hours, The Sun reports. He then discovered it was previously a write-off — so angrily messaged the seller to ask: “How do you sleep at night knowing you are ripping people off?’’Yaseen, who had moved to the Gulf state with his wife Robyn, 31, was arrested after the man complained to cops. He spent three weeks behind bars — and was then kicked out of the country.
A Japanese astronaut has apologized for causing “fake news” after tweeting he had grown 9 centimeters (3.5 inches) since landing on the International Space Station. Norishige Kanai, 41, hastily corrected his initial claim by admitting he has actually only grown 2 cm. Tweeting Wednesday, he admitted: “Although it was a measurement error, it seems that it has become a serious topic.
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".
