The butcher is telling me about pork knuckle – in particular about the cut’s value for money, the meat’s habit of falling sweetly from the bone after a long, slow cooking and the way it effortlessly produces a satisfying broth for a cold evening. He tells me of the succulence that ensues from a piece of meat endowed with so much collagen and skin, and the rich, sweet stock it produces. And then there is a reminder of how useful it is for sandwiches the day after roasting.
Leaders of a Derby scout group say they are disgusted after thugs ransacked their building and caused thousands of pounds worth of damage. The 4th Derby Derwent Scout Group's activity base in Derwent Hall, Coleridge Street, was broken into by vandals sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday evening this week. The building is used by dozens of children aged between six and 14 every week to run activities and has been since the group was formed more than 110 years ago.
More than £80,000 has been raised in memory of a popular Derbyshire man who died in a tragic road accident in London. Oliver Farrell died in November 2013 aged just 27 when he was involved in collision with a car in Islington. Tragically, Oliver became the fourth person from the same school year at Ecclesbourne School to die in heart-breaking circumstances. His passing followed the tragic deaths of Will Sheppard in 2003, Tom Fletcher in 2004 and Tom Donaldson in 2009.
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".
