It felt as though, for a couple of days, the Ghost of Football Past looked at the machines that are changing the face of the game and lobbed a Luddite spanner into the works. Qatar’s Barcelona aristocrats coming to Abramovich’s Fulham Road mansion was supposed to be the only story in town this week. One that would make us realise how lucky we are to follow a game that’s been transported to new heights with the advent of petro-billions, science and technology.
Mirror writers have been nominated for the most prestigious awards in British journalism for bringing you the very best in news and comment. They have been shortlisted for 11 Society of Editors Press Awards – the newspaper industry’s Oscars – to be presented in London next month. Judges were impressed by our fine writing and hard-hitting exclusives, which they said had “produced the best journalism for readers”.
The facial reconstruction of Britain’s oldest known resident, Cheddar Man, leaves many unanswered questions. Does that close-shaven complexion tell us they were extremely rich 10,000 years ago, as today’s men need to take out a second mortgage to afford a four-pack of Gillette Fusion ProGlides? Do we know how narrowly he escaped becoming Joan Collins’ first hubby?
Gordievsky was a retired spy writing a book which the right-wing press sensationalised. Jones called it “a farrago of lies designed by a man who wants to make a lot of money.'' No other evidence against him. Wilson won elections in 64, 66 Mar 74 and Oct 74. But apart from that.. https://twitter.com/Scotia_Nostra/status/966451090400137217
The Right tried to kill the first Labour government, four-times election-winning PM Harold Wilson and Britain's most powerful trade union leader Jack Jones with communist spy smears. @jeremycorbyn should feel honoured to be keeping such company. He's clearly got them rattled.
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".
