The next UK City of Culture has been named as Coventry as Hull's year-long celebration nears an end. Coventry, Paisley, Stoke-on-Trent, Sunderland and Swansea were in the running for the title - which is credited with attracting major investment to former winners - in 2021. The announcement was made in current the City of Culture, Hull, during the BBC's The One Show this evening. The competition is held every four years, with Derry-Londonderry the first winner in 2013.
FORMER Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale has said she has “a bit of work to do to make amends” following her appearance on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! The MSP was the second contestant voted off the ITV reality show on Sunday but will remain in Australia until next week when the programme finishes. Labour described her participation in the show as “an unauthorised leave of absence” but Ms Dugdale was not suspended from the party.
A double amputee who feared he would never walk again is preparing to set sail on a global adventure for charity. Paul Johnson lost both of his legs in November 2014 when he was hit by an electric shock as he drunkenly crossed a railway line in Glasgow. The 24-year-old spent months in hospital and rehabilitation as he was taught to walk again with prosthetics. Mr Johnson worked with the Finding Your Feet charity , who he credits with rebuilding his confidence after the horrific accident.
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".
