Thomas Cook said it has provided support to 22,000 customers in destinations impacted by Hurricane Irma in what it called an “operationally challenging” month. The travel giant said it was forced to evacuate thousands of customers in its worst hit resorts, The Cayos in Cuba, while it also had 10,000 customers in Florida and 4,500 in the Dominican Republic. Around 15,500 of those customers affected were from the UK.
An idea to capitalise on the “sports luxe” craze sweeping the female fashion market led a Norfolk science writer to launch her own range of skin care products for active women. FitGirl, which sells luxury bath and body products made from all-natural ingredients, is the brainchild of mother-of-two Nina Goad. Since launching in January the brand has been scouted by TK Maxx, which is stocking the products in its Greater London outlets, and online gift box service Smileaway.
An intrepid team of staff from two Norfolk companies battled an inflatable obstacle course to raise £9,000 for the East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH) Nook Appeal. The seven-strong crew from housebuilder Abel Homes, along with sister firm Abel Energy, took part in the Gung Ho! event at Earlham Park in Norwich in aid of the appeal, which it pledged to raise £25,000 for by 2018.
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".
