His spell as the Time Lord divided viewers. But now former Doctor Who Peter Capaldi has outraged fans by charging £75 for an autograph. The 59-year-old actor, who is one of the main draws at the annual London Comic Con, is giving a talk at the sci-fi-led event. But has come under fire for demanding such a high price for his autograph. He also asks attendees to fork out £65 for a photograph with him – or £225 for a 'diamond pass' consisting of an 'exclusive mug, photo, autograph and priority seat'.
As an environmental campaigner, it was no surprise when Prince Charles condemned the ‘nightmare’ of rubbish filling our oceans. But his commitment was called into question last night after it emerged that his Highgrove shop sells dozens of items made from or wrapped in plastic. Products made entirely from the material include wreaths and plates. Others are individually wrapped, including a pet bed, toffee, a silk pocket square and even notebooks.
Naughty thoughts tend to pop up in our heads when we think about the four sexy hunks from JLS. So we really got hot under the collar yesterday when we heard they'd brought out a range of condoms with their faces on the wrappers. The four JLS condom wrappers (colour co-ordinated, of course) are part of the band's Just Love Safe range. They were unveiled yesterday at the launch of the JLS Foundation, the band's charity promoting safe sex.
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".
