Prominent North-East businessman John Elliott was celebrating at Redcar today after his horse Kynren won the feature race of the day in the blue and white colours of Bishop Auckland Football Club. Mr Elliott, owner of successful Bishop Auckland company Ebac, has the three-year-old gelding in partnership with his brothers Colin and Tony, and the manager of his sheet metalwork department Stuart Peacock.
IT’S just three weeks to Redcar’s highlight of the year, the £175,000 Totepool Two Year Old Trophy, and there’s an intriguing pointer to the big race at the seaside track tomorrow (September 19). Newmarket big-hitter Hugo Palmer sends out a well-bred newcomer in Hedonism for the first of eight races - the Watch Racing UK Anywhere Novice Auction Stakes at 1.20pm - and it’s interesting to note that the Excelebration filly is entered for the Two Year Old Trophy on October 7.
A NATIONAL initiative to get more girls playing football has been so popular in Darlington that it is being being extended. Darlington Spraire Lads and Lasses were selected by the Football Association for the scheme to double the number of girls from five to 12 playing the sport by 2020.
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".
