Pride of Britain winner Moin Younis typifies the spirit of Birmingham – a city with a big heart and a can-do spirit. And ours is a city that’s going places too – we’ve just been confirmed as the host city for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Birmingham is at the centre of the fastest growing regional economy outside London. Blue chip companies are queuing up to move here. HS2 has chosen it as its headquarters. Redevelopment is fast changing the face of Brum.
Do you know an unsung hero? They can be any age and from any walk of life. Perhaps it is a fundraiser or campaigner, a member of the emergency services, or a child who has overcome adversity to help others. These are the categories:For an individual or group of people who have worked together in partnership as a force for good in their local community.
When teenager Moin Younis took to the stage of last year’s Pride of Britain Awards, he stole the hearts of the nation. The brave Brummie youngster has a rare life-limiting condition which makes his skin blister, bleed and break at the slightest touch. But he refuses to succumb to the cruel pain that stalks his every moment, and has become an ambassador for the children’s hospice that has helped him.
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".
