We all depend on our home appliances for so many aspects of our lives, so when an appliance breaks down it can be an expensive proposition to replace it – especially if you’re on a budget. But did you know there’s a few things you can do to ensure that your appliances are working at their best and last longer?
Christmas is just around the corner and can often be a strain on our wallets, with the effects felt well into the New Year. That’s why you should always start planning your Christmas finances in advance so that nothing comes as a shock last minute. Before you start going shopping mad, you need to set a budget. You should start by working out what your income will be for the month.
Mark your calendars: Black Friday will be hitting us this year on Friday 24th November. The shopping extravaganza that started in the US has made its way across the pond to the UK since 2013. Black Friday has attracted very polarising opinions – some see it as a great opportunity to snap up some bargains for Christmas, and others see it as a mad rush of crazed shoppers. Due to health and safety concerns and bad press, the major retailers are now much more likely to offer the best deals online.
Jerry wanted Johnny Football. He was denied. One of the best things about him is that he is able to evolve, delegate and remove his ego from football decisions. His role has morphed into the larger, big picture power moves, and he thrives there. That role put him into the HoF https://t.co/HHfvaGwKYV
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
