While HSBC may no longer be the “World’s Local Bank”, there is little doubt that – with over 2000 stores – the Co-op is the “UK’s Local Wine Merchant”. Despite that massive availability, the operation’s wine range is consistently underestimated, so here are three good “toe dipping” opportunities (excuses) for any who still harbour a few doubts. As usual, click on any of the bottles shown for an enlarged image to help you pinpoint the wine on a crowded shelf.
Waitrose may well have topped a recent Which? survey on customer satisfaction but not everyone links it with deals, offers and entry priced wines. However, their latest promotion – which begins this morning and runs until 11 July – discounts prices on over a hundred wines in various forms with prices starting at £4.99. Here are some of its highlights. As usual, click on any picture for an enlarged image to help you find the bottle in a crowded display.
Lidl’s latest “while stocks last” promotion begins today with 30+ different wines; they start from £4.99 and all have a clear Mediterranean flavour. Once again the promotion contains great value wines and is led this time by four or five from Spain around, or under, a fiver – perfect for summer drinking. As before, there are also a couple of good value wines from other retailers. Click on any of the bottles shown for an enlarged image to help you pinpoint the wine on a crowded display.
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".
