The Jewish community in Northern Ireland has launched a campaign to raise awareness in Israel about a Co Down tourist who has gone missing there. Oliver McAfee, a gardener from Dromore, was last seen on November 21 when cycling on the Israel National Trail. Steven Jaffe, co-chair of Northern Ireland Friends of Israel (NIFI), said his group has initiated Facebook adverts to raise awareness. “The belief of the police and search teams is there is every likelihood Ollie is still alive,” he said.
Israeli police say a missing Northern Ireland man who had been cycling in the southern Israeli desert is still alive. Oliver McAfee, a 29-year-old gardener from Dromore in County Down, was last seen on 21 November.
A Kingsmills massacre victim has welcomed condemnation of the atrocity by Sinn Fein’s John O’Dowd - but says republicans must now take the final step and admit it was carried out by the IRA. Ten Protestant workmen were gunned down by the IRA at Kingsmills in south Armagh on 5 January 1976. The IRA never claimed the attack and Sinn Fein has never accepted that the IRA was responsible. However the Historical Enquiries Team and PSNI have both independently blamed the IRA.
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".
