Mr Cable, set to take over on Thursday, has promised constructive opposition instead. His comments come after the Prime Minister appealed for opposition parties to “contribute, not just criticise”. Outgoing Lib Dem leader Tim Farron had warned Mrs May that she would face hell trying to get the Repeal Bill, which will copy all EU rules on to the British statute book, through parliament. However, Mr Cable said: “Our current party leader said he was going to make hell.
Long a staple of sci-fi films, recent years have seen a rise in interest in real-life sex robots – a machine, often a life-like doll, to take the place of a human partner in sexual activity. Companion robots (of the non-sexual variety) are already in use today and the pros and cons of these are the focus of academic research.
Political parties on all sides have used the eve of the European elections to call on Scottish voters to reject Ukip. Scots were urged to prevent the Eurosceptics, who have faced accusations of racism and sexism in recent days, from gaining their first parliamentarian north of the border. The moves came a day after The Herald revealed that seven in 10 Scots back stricter immigration controls, a key part of Ukip's policy pitch.
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".
