The SunLife Cost of Dying report – the UK’s leading report into funeral costs – shows that following a rise of 4.7% in just a year, the average funeral in the UK now costs £4,078. In the past decade, funeral costs have risen more than 70%, that’s more than three and a half times the increase in house prices and petrol prices. If house prices had risen at the same rate as funeral costs, the average house would cost almost £100,000 more than it does today.
QHotels, the UK’s largest golf resort operator, has partnered with the Revenue Club as it looks to increase non-residential, online green-fee sales. The Revenue Club (TRC) is a monthly subscription service that helps golf courses maximise revenue from an on-line source and has been working, initially, with Dunston Hall, in Norwich, and Slaley Hall, in Northumberland – two of QHotels’ 10 golf resort properties – for a beneficial ‘proving’ period.
The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has paved the way for many recent advancements including fighting disease, thwarting fraud, trading stocks, improving workflows and even finding patterns in big data. However despite its ability to uncover insights and execute complex tasks more efficiently AI has yet to accurately predict the future until now.
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".
