Former professional wrestler Robert Bradshaw was found dead in his car after a passer-by alerted police to the vehicle. The member of the public raised the alarm after the 38-year-old’s vehicle had been parked in the same place on a car park for a number of days. The grim discovery was made in Prestatyn on August 7 after Robert, of Critchlow Grove, Blurton, had travelled to North Wales from the Potteries.
Twenty-nine community groups are in the money - after receiving a share of a £515,000 council cashpot. They have landed cash from the first round of funding from Stoke-on-Trent City Council's community investment fund (CIF). And it means £2.5 million is still up for grabs up to 2020 - with the next funding round already open and grants available from £500 to £50,000. The CIF cash must be spent on equipment or improvements to buildings.
Fraudster Alan Surrey pocketed £38,000 in benefits while working as a door-to-door collector and care worker - despite claiming he was too unfit to have a job. The 64-year-old received the public handouts over a 10-year period. But he was busted in 2016 after investigators from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) carried out surveillance on the defendant. Undercover officers filmed him - on three occasions in April and May 2016 - walking without a stick and at a normal pace.
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".
