Hampshire spun their way to an eight-wicket victory over T20 Blast South group Glamorgan, with England Test new boy Mason Crane claiming 3-21. The man he replaced for England, Liam Dawson, took 2-15 as Glamorgan were restricted to 118-6 on a slow pitch. James Vince (60 not out) got the hosts' reply off to a flying start and Tom Alsop (28) and George Bailey (25 not out) clinched the win in the 14th over. Elsewhere, Middlesex beat Sussex by two runs in a tight finish at Lord's.
Glamorgan chief executive Hugh Morris says the county is facing a "big six months" off the field as he bids for future high-profile games in Cardiff. The England and Wales Cricket Board is due to allocate international fixtures from 2020 to 2024. The host grounds for the city-based franchise T20 event starting in 2020 are also due to be decided. "It's a continual process, the lobbying, it's a big six months coming up," Morris told BBC Wales Sport.
It’s not just hipsters seeking backers for Kale-flavoured craft beer who are using Kickstarter. Damien Murtagh, son of billionaire Kingspan founder Eugene Murtagh, is out looking for money too. Murtagh Jr, who is an architect, has developed a terrifically clever hobby building kit called Arckit — it’s like Lego for architects and wannabe city builders. The pieces click together to make 3D models of architectural projects.
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".
