Vernon Philander has admitted South Africa “had a few hard chats” in the wake of the 239-run defeat in the third Test that left them 2-1 down with one to play at Old Trafford starting on Friday. South Africa lost three wickets for no runs at The Oval as Moeen Ali spun England to victory with a hat-trick but Philander blamed the tourists’ defeat on their collapse in the first innings when, at one point, they were 61 for seven.
Corrie actress Beverley Callard says that beating her clinical depression is ‘the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do’. The star, who plays barmaid Liz McDonald, left the cobbles last year after suffering a relapse of the illness which overcame her in 2009. Early in 2016 she broke down in tears when her medication for clinical depression was suddenly discontinued. But Callard, who returned to the soap later that year, now says she’s on the road to recovery.
The 31-year-old maths whizz fell foul of Tottenham Hotspur fans after a remark following a crucial loss at the end of last season, the Mirror reports. Rachel has stepped down from Sky Sports’ Friday Night Football, which she presented alongside ex-Countdown host and Soccer Saturday stalwart Jeff Stelling. The flashpoint came last month after title hopefuls Spurs’ dream of winning the Premier League was once again dashed. They had lost 1-0 at West Ham United.
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".
