Annihilation sounds awesome on premise alone, but the cast and director involved so far are only fuel to the fires of excitement. Prepare for even more awesome news, as Oscar Issac has been announced as the cast's latest addition.
The Government announced another shake-up of the electricity markets yesterday, to make it easier for people to generate their own power and sell it to the National Grid. The plan is to create so-called smarter energy systems, whereby everyone can respond to the price signals in the minute-by-minute wholesale market. Instead of buying your kilowatts at the same price per unit during the whole year, why not sell a few megawatts to your supplier by turning off your fridge on a cold November evening?
I usually resist the temptation to read the Court Register as it makes me angry to see the whimsical way penalties are imposed by our judiciary. Vivian Gedney and Scott McKenzie receive a £175/£220 fine, £30 v/s, £85 costs for no MOT but Saulius Grigaitis receives “no separate penalty” for the same offence. Rebecca Courton sentenced for drink-driving and taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, but escapes a penalty for no insurance.
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".
