Meet the incredible 10-year-old who has made a huge difference to the lives of Manchester’s homeless. Over the past 12 months, school girl Mia Cotterill has helped dozens of rough sleepers in the city centre by handing out clothing, sleeping bags and toiletries. She is now hoping to go one-step further by starting her very own meals on wheels service and has been selling home-made cakes to raise cash for containers which she can use to transport food.
Thousands of people are backing a call for a mass vaccination catch-up after the death of a six-year-old girl from Oldham. Layla Rose Ermenekli passed away in February after medics failed to realise a rash on her hip was a sign of meningococcal meningitis and septicaemia. A report into an investigation carried out by Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, released at the beginning of this month, found doctors ‘missed opportunities to identify the severity’ of Layla Rose’s illness.
‘Skeletal remains’ have been found in a park in Bolton. The grim discovery was made this morning at Leverhulme Park. Members of the Bolton North East Wildlife Trail (NEWT) had been clearing bushes around the pond when one of them came across what looked like a skull. They immediately called police, and the park was cordoned off. Detectives and CSI are currently at the scene.
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".
