A mice-infested care home where vulnerable pensioners were given food they could have choked on - and a resident fell ‘face first’ out of their wheelchair after going outside unsupervised - has been put into special measures. Rodents were found in the kitchen, dining room and cleaning store at Acorn Care Centre in Wigan. A damning Care Quality Commission (CQC) report revealed residents were not being kept safe and were at risk of harm as care plans were not properly followed.
The sister of a ‘bright, beautiful and bubbly’ young woman found stabbed to death days before Christmas has told of her family’s tortuous five hour wait for answers after first hearing rumours of what had happened to her. Niki Campbell was found dead at a flat in Harpurhey on December 22, alongside that of a man, named locally as John Lee Morris. Detectives are treating 30-year-old Niki’s death as murder. They are ‘not looking for anyone else’ in connection with the incident.
Police are investigating after a family home was torched in Hattersley. The ‘atrocious’ arson attack comes just days after shots were fired at the front door of a house on a neighbouring street. GMP have not yet confirmed whether or not the two incidents are related. Emergency services were called to Callington Close, in Hattersley, in the early hours of Thursday morning after two people broke inside and set it alight. It’s believed they then fled the scene towards Torrington Drive.
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".
