The Deal of the Week is a special offer for listeners who can save up to 20% on Le Boat Cruises on the Rideau Canal this summer. This very special offer applies to new bookings for 7 nights or more made before January 31, 2018 for travel in 2018. You can save 20% on May and October departures, 15% in July, and 10% on June and September departures. The low season months of May and October can be the best time to go – and that’s when the savings are at the greatest.
Every now and then someone will send in a photograph that I’ve never ever seen of some familiar part of Plymouth and before I know it I’ve lost 10, 15, 20 minutes just staring at it on screen, enlarging sections and trying to precisely place it, date it and generally try to uncover the wealth of information it contains. This is one such photograph. Thanks to Bob Hill who passed it my way. Bob says he’s had a copy for many years but has long since forgotten where he first found it.
The main picture doesn’t quite line up with the other two but the basic vantage point is roughly the same in each instance – from the New Continental Hotel. With the first colour shot it’s not so much in, as on the Continental, as I suspect Mike Cox took his in October 1998 from the same spot on the roof as I took the now shot in October 2017.
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".
