THE doors of Dismaland will not open to the general public until Saturday but the Mercury has put together an online gallery of what you can expect from the show...Today the Mercury confirmed numerous rumours about the infamous street artist’s show taking over the Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare and we have been down to the site to offer our readers a glimpse as to what the show has to offer.
Popular country singer Charlie Landsborough is returning to The Playhouse in Weston, and you could win free tickets to the show. The musician has won almost every possible award available on the UK country scene, and he was inducted into the British Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011. His latest tour will showcase his talent through beautiful melodies, funny story-telling and superb musicianship. He will perform with a band, whose talents are also unquestionable, to create a memorable show.
A £2.15million expansion has opened at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre and it will hold an open day to show people what it has to offer. The Mercury has teamed up with the centre to help get people active and is offering five lucky readers the chance to get a free 30-day membership. Winners of this exclusive competition will be able to use all of the centre’s state-of-the art facilities for 30 days.
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".
