The Larmer Tree Festival celebrated it’s 25th birthday in July, and I went along to find out how this friendly little festival has endured through the years, despite the ever growing competition and some pretty tough weather along the way…The first Larmer Tree Festival (LTF) in 1990, was a party for around 150 people, which lasted for just 12 hours. But over the years, the festival has grown gradually and organically into a much bigger event.
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) heralded the agreement in October, of a new global market-based measure to control carbon emissions from international aviation, as an ‘historic agreement’. But will it make a difference to global climate change and deliver real carbon savings? I decided to take a closer look at the new Aviation Carbon Reduction Scheme…Airlines fly over three billion passengers each year and this is expected to double by 2035.
Most of us could list the Big Five animals associated with a safari… but what about the Ugly Five, and which beastly mammal picks up the award for just being bad? A visit to Botswana offers excellent opportunities for game viewing, with its low population density, strict anti-poaching laws, a recent ban on hunting, seasonal water sources and vast salt pans.
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".
