These days you can barely move in a restaurant without someone snapping a picture of what you're eating. And that's not to say we're against it - even we will admit it makes our Instagram feeds more interesting than pictures of cats and our next door neighbours' nephews. So we thought we'd point out the places which make for the loveliest pictures of food in Cambridge. And if you haven't already, give the Cambridge News Instagram account a follow for beautiful pictures of life around the city.
When it's cold and miserable outside, many of us like to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book or film. And as snow is set to hit Cambridgeshire this weekend, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create a list of our favourite snow day films. Grab the duvet, heat up some hot chocolate and snuggle down for a day of feel-good films. And because we're extra nice we've even divided them up into genres, to stop any possible fights for the remote.
What does it take to make a proper pukka pie? The Cambridge Brew House should know. The country celebrated National Pie Week last week and in honour of the occasion The Independent released a list of the best places to enjoy a pie in the UK. Naturally the list was full of east end pie and mash shops and even a Welsh social club that sells pork pie ice cream. But what caught our eye was the mention of somewhere much closer to home - The Cambridge Brew House.
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".
