Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has been axed as the leader of the ruling Zanu-PF party. The party met today and unceremoniously dumped the man who has led them for the last 37 years. To add insult to injury they then appointed as their new leader the man Mugabe had sacked himself two weeks ago, his former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa. This sparked fears among some army chiefs that he was trying to pave the way for his wife Grace to seize power after he died.
The ceremony was certainly unusual - so it's perhaps no surprise that the wedding pictures are like none you've ever seen. Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson married his bride Paula Williamson, a former Coronation Street and Emmerdale actress, in the chapel at HMP Wakefield prison on Tuesday.
Possession stories terrify me. Haunted house stories? Not so much. The way to survive a haunted house — it's to not go into that haunted house. The same with slashers. If you want to live, don't go to that summer camp. You can't avoid a possession, though. You can be Regan in The Exorcist, just bopping along being a kid, and suddenly, as a result of nothing you've done, you're inhabited by some malicious presence.
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".
