A 64-year-old caught with bullets and indecent images of children has been given a suspended prison sentence. James John Hall downloaded sick pictures of youngsters over more than four years. He also had the ammunition hidden in a drawer – a wartime memento he inherited from a family friend, Plymouth Crown Court heard. But he had no gun capable of firing the rifle tracer cartridges, the Plymouth Herald reports.
A man has been cleared of raping and sexually abusing a schoolgirl after a week-long trial. Stephen Bridgeman, aged 43, was acquitted on all 11 counts after the trial at Plymouth Crown Court. Mr Bridgeman showed little reaction as the jury forewoman announced the decision after deliberations which stretched over three days. He was ushered from the building by security guards after being threatened and abused during the trial, the Plymouth Herald reports.
A man has been jailed for 33 weeks after he possessed three knives and then dumped a lethal airgun in bushes by a court during a spate of bizarre behaviour. Steven Harvey, aged 44, drank from a broken bottle and repeatedly got in and out of his car outside Plymouth Magistrates’ Court. A witness worried the defendant was drink-driving called the police – who found the BB gun in bushes and found one knife in his waistband and two others in the car, the Plymouth Herald reports.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
