I knew I wanted to be a journalist from a young age but initially was more interested in news so, after my degree (Politics, Newcastle University), I did a one-year post graduate diploma in journalism and then worked on a regional daily newspaper for two years. After one too many death knocks, (which is when you try to get an interview with the family of someone who's recently died. Nice), I decided I needed a change of scene and applied for a fashion editor job on a fashion trade magazine.
A recent survey revealed an average family of four spends around £3500 on an annual holiday abroad (£860pp), that's an awful lot of days out back home...1 Latitude Festival, Suffolk Taking place this weekend (13-16 July at Henham Park), it's the best family-friendly festival.
The Sensimar Minos Palace overlooks its own stretch of rocky beach and is known for its panoramic views. The sea views, which can be seen from every angle of this hotel, are stunning. Narrow paths, buried in a manicured tangle of greenery, lead down to a wild and lovely stretch of rocky coastline. The jewel in the crown is the large, saltwater infinity pool, surrounded by plenty of day beds, sun loungers and bean bags. There's a bijou spa with several treatment rooms.
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".
