A poppy appeal collection box has apparently been stolen from a New Addington chippy. The charity box vanished from a counter at The Parade Fish Shop in Central Parade on Saturday afternoon, according to shop owner Costa Kast. Marion Burchell, from community group New Addington Pathfinders, had “no words” to describe the person who may have taken the money, which goes to helping the armed services every year.
Two members of the public helped rescue a man after his car crashed into Sanderstead Pond on Saturday night. Police, paramedics and fire crews were called to the pond on the Sanderstead roundabout at 7.15pm. Watch Manager Gary Brooks at Addington fire station said the driver, a man in his 60s, had gone into cardiac arrest as he was driving around the roundabout. He said he missed another car by "millimetres", then hit a lamppost before the car crashed into the pond on Limpsfield Road.
An ambulance taking an elderly woman to hospital in Carshalton had a window shattered by an item which was potentially “fired” from a slingshot. Sam Barrett-Cross’s 88-year-old grandmother was “really unwell” and kept being sick so an ambulance was called to her from her Beddington home to hospital on Friday (November 17) night. The London Ambulance Service (LAS) vehicle was travelling down Carshalton High Street at about 7pm, without its blue lights on, when 35-year-old Sam heard a noise.
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".
