A Take Me Out contestant who lost his chocolate museum job because he took four days off to film the show hanged himself a month later, an inquest heard. Charlie Watkins, 22, went on the dating show in a bid to find 'the one' after saying he was disappointed he had been unlucky in love during his three years at university. York Coroners' Court heard the Criminology graduate took a job at the chocolate museum and shop 'York Chocolate Story' for "a few months" after completing his degree.
In the early hours of this morning 13-year-old Alex Ojeda-Sierra woke up with night terrors. And no wonder. Just a few hours earlier the young schoolboy had been caught up in the terror of the Parsons Green bomb attack and on going to sleep had relived the entire ordeal. For the adults caught up in the attack it was terrifying enough.
This is the bizarre moment a man strips nude and sets his joggers on fire around his ankles - while performing a chicken dance. The ‘unique’ footage was captured on a petrol station forecourt as staff quickly try and extinguish the flames. The naked man, believed to be in his 20s, quickly strips down to his jogging bottoms and lights a streak of petrol with a lighter. He then pulls his pants down to his ankles while still alight and does a form of chicken dance while waving his arms in the air.
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".
