If the University of Hull was an alcoholic drink, it would a luke-warm plastic cup of Echo Falls wine. It's definitely not Lambrini, because, after all, it is the City of Culture, you know? Although it tries to be classy, it somehow manages to miss the mark a little. This is demonstrated perfectly by having a quick scan of the Hull Daily Mail: right next to a new story about a classy art exhibition in the Ferens Art Gallery, there is a column about drunk people pooing down alleyways.
Legendary King’s Cross funhouse Bagley’s is being celebrated with a two-day outdoor party this weekend, thrown by elegant listening bar Spiritland. While the event – punnily called ‘Bagelys’ – won’t recreate the six-room squat-messiness of Bagley’s or the glory of staggering out into the sunrise on York Way, it will offer carbalicious treats alongside eight hours of quality underground house music.
You've just moved into your dingy halls, and your parents have waved their goodbyes. All the excitement you had over the summer for has turned into lump in your throat and butterflies in your stomach. What're you going to do now? It's a new city, and you don't know anyone... In school, you had no choice in your education, and you were forced to endure subjects you had no interest in. At university, at least I hope, you have chosen a subject for you and nobody else.
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".
