We never forget our childhood friends, although we do often lose touch as the years slip by. Here two long-lost mates tell how they found each other again in the Queen’s own back gardenWhen Jimmy Kennedy said goodbye to his boyhood pal Colin Bishop more than half a century ago, they vowed to meet up again soon. But slowly the weeks, months, years and even decades passed. It seemed that the last time they saw each other back in 1962 would actually be their final ever meeting.
This summer, racing legend Lightning McQueen faces up to the new kid on the block, next generation racer Jackson Storm. Old timers versus the next generation, teammates turned enemies, friendships that turned frosty… sport is immeasurably enhanced when there’s a feisty clash between two extravagantly talented rivals. What makes motorsport rivalries really entertaining is that more often than not they’re happening within the same team, rather than between opponents.
When our 2017 Mirror Pride of Britain Awards , in partnership with TSB, tour hit the south coast, it wasn’t only the crowds that turned out to show their support. Singer and TV personality Peter Andre was there too, greeting the three distinctive liveried Minis as they pulled up in front of Brighton Palace Pier. Peter has been a regular supporter of the star-studded annual awards for many years. He says he and his wife Emily always ensure their diary is free for the glittering occasion.
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".
