A woman who filmed what appears to be a big cat creeping through a Fife field has spoken of the moment she saw it. Sabrina Mahmoud’s sighting of the large black creature near Rosyth is the latest in a string of sightings in the Kingdom. She said the animal she saw on the hill near Alexander Place was easily around “four-or-five-times” the size of a domestic cat. “I was shocked. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said. “I was actually thinking; ‘what the hell am I looking at?’.
Walkers and nature-lovers have been shocked to find that a forest at a historic site on the outskirts of Kirkcaldy has been cut back severely. The Forestry Commission undertook the work to thin out the trees at the popular walking spot of Dothan Woods, near Cardenden, however, some passers-by noted the wide open spaces which have been left. Carol Lindsay, who is also a councillor for the neighbouring ward of Kirkcaldy North, said the wood looked like it had been decimated.
A Fife school has told parents it will have to remove a crucial subject from the curriculum as they now have no teachers able to take the classes. Lochgelly High School sent out the letter saying that they will be unable to teach computing to pupils after the only teacher capable left for another school. And the letter from head teacher Carol Ann Penrose even goes as far to say that two previous attempts to recruit computer teachers had resulted in no applications received.
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".
