A cursory glance at the Premier League table quickly reveals that the league's epicentre currently resides in the city of Manchester. While the top flight has a widely acknowledged 'big six', Chelsea are the only other member of that half-dozen-elite to have won the championship in the last 14 years (not to forget, of course, the heroics of the minnows from Leicester City). Meanwhile, the supposedly big guns of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have not won the league for 14 and 57 years respectively.
England's Premier League clubs lived up or down to their stereotypes during the 2018 edition of the January transfer window. To the delight or despair of fans – depending upon their hue – the Big Six wheeled and dealed in a manner that has become synonymous with their brands. At best, Arsenal fans will be scratching their heads while Chelsea supporters will be feeling slightly smug.
At the Australian Open two years ago Johanna Konta finally made the breakthrough that had been predicted for Britain's best female tennis player for many years. The Sydney-born right-hander reached the semi-final, beating Venus Williams along the way, before losing to eventual champion Angelique Kerber. It was a springboard which launched her to the Wimbledon semi-finals last year, although we are yet to see if she can end Britain's 41-year wait for a women's grand slam champion.
@aubrey_writes As seemingly everyone in front of me at a gig is holding their phone up to film it, I often wonder how many of them actually ever watch it again? Isn't it just more fun to enjoy the gig?
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".
