Heartbroken dog owners have made an emotional plea for the return of his beloved pet - who they believe has been stolen for fighting. Lottie, a blue Staffordshire bull terrier, disappeared from the back garden of her home more than two weeks ago. Her owners are offering a £1,000 reward for the return of three-year-old Lottie. Paul and Lorraine Moores, 53 and 50, from Thornholme Road, Marple, have distributed hundreds of leaflets appealing for information on her whereabouts.
Police have issued a warning after a 16-year-old boy died after he was believed to have taken ecstasy-type tablets at a Halloween rave. The boy, who has not been named, died from a suspected overdose in the early hours of Sunday morning. He is believed to have taken tablets which were pink and square-shaped with the Rolls Royce symbol on them while at the event in Gwytherin, near Abergele in Conwy, North Wales, the Manchester Evening News reports.
A woman has been jailed for four years for luring a 13-year-old boy into her home and forcing him to have sex with her. The boy, who was a virgin at the time, cried as he was pinned down by Nicola Fox, 33. Fox lured the youngster into her home in Hull by saying she wanted a "chat", then when he tried to leave, she closed the curtains and pulled him onto her bed in the room that also served as her living room.
@harrietewstack Hi Harriet, just to clarify, I syndicate stories for Essex Live and we share content with all of the nationals. We can't guarantee which papers will pick up work, that's why I use the term 'nationals', when seeking permission for images. Thanks
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".
