SHOPS across the nation have been warned to be vigilant for ISIS-inspired terrorists launching a Black Friday atrocity. The country’s high streets will be thronged as shoppers turn out in force to snap-up pre-Christmas bargains. But deranged Jihadis could see the sales frenzy as the ideal time to mount a strike – with Christmas markets highlighted as another potential target. Now the Home Office-funded National Business Crime Centre is warning shops to be on the look-out for terrorists.
THE majority of workers building a new £200million polar research ship meant to boost local jobs are foreign labourers. Fewer than five welders and platers were hired from the community this year for RSS Sir David Attenborough, which the public voted to call Boaty McBoatface. About 80 per cent of the workforce, 381 staff, are foreign. They are mostly Romanian and Polish, and many are bussed to the yard each day.
A WOMAN claims a dancing toy dog she bought at Asda for her 88-year-old grandma for Christmas sings the F-word. The ‘Animated Dog’ from George at Asda jives to the tune Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) when his paw is pressed. But when Zora Wilson, 27, showed the gift to her mother, they were appalled to hear it trill, “f*** me all night!”The shocked student, of Derby, said: “My grandmother loves those dancing animal toys at Christmas.
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".
