The reasons for black cab rapist John Worboys’ imminent release from prison were still shrouded in mystery today as ministers refused to challenge the decision to grant him parole. Outraged MPs called on Met Commissioner Cressida Dick to order a fresh probe into allegations against the sex predator that were never pursued. And lawyers for Worboys’ victims vowed to go ahead with their own court challenge, describing the attacker as a “manipulative, calculating and dangerous man”.
Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood took steroids before he mowed down four pedestrians and stabbed a PC to death. Masood, 52, was shot dead by police after he drove at pedestrians before murdering PC Keith Palmer, 48. Masood may have taken the rage-inducing drugs hours before he launched the rampage on Westminster Bridge, a pre-hearing inquest at the Old Bailey was told today.
The Hatton Garden jewel raiders have been warned they face longer prison terms – unless they repay nearly £14million to their victims. The stolen loot includes nearly £3million of pearls owned by one man, a confiscation hearing was told. Gold, jewels and cash from the hole-in-wall raid was worth a minimum of £13.69million, the court was told. Earlier police estimates had put the haul at £25million, but only £14million can be proved to have been taken.
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".
