Britain’s most decorated female Olympian is set to visit a south Bucks school to deliver a fitness session with 12 aspiring sportspeople in a bid to help the school with its fundraising efforts for a new astro turf. Dame Katherine Grainger will run an elite fitness session at Beaconsfield High School later this year, followed by a question and answer session with lucky students. Ten spaces will be available to bid on in the school’s Burns Night auction, which is running online until Saturday.
A woman who has donated blood more than 100 times over the past 50 years was honoured at an awards ceremony. Yvonne Burnside, from Amersham, has been donating blood for the past five decades after she was inspired to follow her father in his footsteps when he started to give blood. The 69-year-old was recognised alongside 66 blood and platelet donors from London and the surrounding areas who, together, have saved and improved the lives of up to 24,000 patients.
A TV make-up artist from Beaconsfield is urging people to have regular eye tests after she was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer. Joanne Morgan, 45, was told she had ocular melanoma in November following an eye test, after she became concerned when she started experiencing flickering and flashing in the peripheral of her eye. The mother-of-three was prescribed new glasses when she visited her optician but was told by an ophthalmologist at The Claremont Clinic that she had the cancer.
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".
