Need another bottle to keep your party or barbecue going? Then here are couple of suggestions for reliable fare, currently at great prices down at most local Co-ops. I go on to recommend a couple of quality reds that you may like to pick up while you are there. In addition to suggestions from the Co-op, I have my regular Best of the Rest feature and a tip about serving wine. As usual, click on any of the bottles shown for an enlarged image to help you pinpoint the wine on a crowded shelf.
Canny drinkers planning their Bank Holiday purchases may like to see the following details I have just received from Sainsbury’s. Follow the link to an earlier post (and scroll down) for wines that have previously appeared on this site. Sainsbury’s is offering 25% off when customers buy 6 or more bottles of wine in store and online, valid between Friday 18 August and Tuesday 29 August 2017.
A three week Waitrose wine promotion is currently under way and offers reductions on some 120 products until 29 August. Regular favourites like Torres Vina Sol (down 25% to £5.73) and Santa Julia Malbec (down 20% to £6.99) put in an appearance again but I have selected two Italian wines as my particular choices from the list. Once again I have also pinpointed two other star buys from elsewhere in the High Street and added another wine related top tip.
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".
