A father has denied forcing his daughter of 16 to marry her cousin in Pakistan against her will. Ian Hope, prosecuting, told Canterbury Crown Court that the teenager, who turned 18 last week, had been forced into the marriage. Her father Muhammad Akmal, 50, of Dane Road, Margate is accused of coercing her to enter into a forced marriage between September and December 2015 when she was 16.
A father who suffered severe facial injuries when his car was hit by a drink-driver from Herne Bay said his five-year-old son could not look at him because he resembled “a monster”. Witnesses said Richard Mannall’s car was hit in the back like a pinball by David Thompson when he lost control on a roundabout near Monkton. The force of the crash pushed Mr Mannall’s car forward, spinning it across the road.
A 14-year-old girl who was on her way to catch a bus to school was grabbed from behind in a "bear hug" by a would-be kidnapper who planned to sexually assault her. When she turned round she saw Thomas Bevan standing there with a pair of handcuffs in his hand, Canterbury Crown Court was told. The girl, who recognised Bevan, dropped her rucksack and ran off.
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".
