One of Scotland's highest waterfalls has frozen over, attracting the attention of seasoned ice climbers. Lochaber's 120m (394ft) Steall Falls are reached by trekking through the Nevis Gorge in Glen Nevis. The waterfall was used as a backdrop in the 2005 film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The falls are known to freeze over in winter and spring. Its waters have frozen again in a recent period of cold weather that also brought disruptive heavy snowfalls to central and southern Scotland.
A white-tailed sea eagle has been photographed by a remote camera trap with its wings spread next to a dead red deer stag. The stag, which had been knocked down and killed on a road in North Uist, was left near the camera to observe what wildlife would be drawn to it. Even RSPB Scotland staff who have shared the image were stunned by the size of the eagle. Nicknamed flying barn doors, the birds can have a wingspan of 2.4m (7.8ft).
The Loch Ness Monster has been cast as a villain in a US crime drama. But should fans of Nessie, who is usually portrayed as a shy and harmless creature, be surprised at her being re-imagined as a bad guy? She is one of Scotland's most famous and best-loved tales. But for the latest episode of American TV series Grimm, showing in the UK later on Tuesday, a new version of the Loch Ness Monster has been created.
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".
