My name is Araminta and I am the founder of the Pipe Down Foundation charity and editor of Pipe Down the magazine. In this column I’d like to be able to explore a little bit about what has been go-ing on for Pipe Down during the month, and perhaps filter in a few of my own opinions and musings on addiction and recovery whilst I’m at it. As this is the first Pipe Down column, I should tell you a bit about about Pipe Down and the Foundation. For years Pipe Down was a Pipe Dream.
GERARD Ellis knows the pressure is on this autumn if he wants to make Wales hopeful Elliot Dee feel the heat in the battle for the Dragons number 2 jersey. Dee has been rewarded for a superb start to the season with a first call-up to the international squad and will spend the next five weeks trying to earn caps against Australia, Georgia, New Zealand and South Africa.
TICKETS have gone on sale for Judgement Day when the Dragons will take on the Scarlets in game one at Principality Stadium. The sixth annual regional double-header will see east take on west with Bernard Jackman’s men going up against their rivals from Llanelli and Cardiff Blues entertaining the Ospreys on Saturday, April 28. The Dragons kick-off at 3.05pm with the second game at 5.35pm despite it being the final weekend of the Guinness PRO14 when all fixtures usually start at the same time.
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".
