Thousands of people are expected to flock to Scarborough’s South Bay for its longest-standing Boxing Day traditions. The festive fun begins at 10.30am on Tuesday when mayor Cllr Martin Smith kicks off the annual football match. The teams will meet in town near Lloyds TSB Bank, in St Nicholas Street, and will walk down Newborough together accompanied with music from the Comic Band.
A legendary and well respected Scarborough Evening News reporter has died at the age of 61. Tributes have flooded in for Chris Nixon, who started as a cub reporter at the newspaper when he was 17. He passed away suddenly on Saturday afternoon. He was respected by his peers and widely across the town, by councillors, police officers and everyone he spoke to regarding local news stories.
On a cold, frosty night, what could be more warming than a tasty, hearty curry? We ventured out across the frozen wastes of town to the Scarborough Tandoori, which, as always, provided a warm welcome. I was glad to see a few other diners had also chosen to leave the comfort of their homes on what I expected to be a quiet Monday night – and one of the coldest of the year. The restaurant’s decor is modern and attractive – it’s one of the most stylish Indian restaurants I’ve visited.
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".
