Have your sayA broken down train on the southbound line between Edinburgh and Berwick is resulting in a number of delays this morning. A number of services have been affected including Virgin Trains East Coast between Stirling and London Kings Cross, between Aberdeen and Leeds and also between Edinburgh and Newcastle. Trains mface delays of to 60 minutes, or being revised or cancelled. Cross Country have stated that this is mainly affecting services towards Berwick-upon-Tweed.
A number of roads across Edinburgh and the Lothians have been blocked by adverse weather as commuters and transport struggles across the city. Despite gritters being out in force across the city, a number of roads remain treacherous due to winter weather. There are long queues on Seafield Road East and Portobello High Street/Joppa Road. Reports indicate that Craigentinny Road and Sir Harry Lauder Road are also busy.
Winter weather has played havoc for many this morning, and it looks set to continue in the Capital. Rush hour strain was added to by the horrific conditions that swept across the Lothians with many commuters and even public transport struggling to cope. The good news it that if forecasts are to be believe there will be some respite for the Capital that may give gritters and public authorities time to prepare for the next batch of winter weather. Despite this, more snow is on the way.
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".
