You are here: HomeTwo of our favourite Bristol things are the Encounters Short Film Festival and 20th Century Flicks, one of Britain’s few remaining proper DVD rental shops. Well imagine our joy when we spotted that those two things are getting together! One of the amazing stores lining the quirky 17th century Christmas Steps in Bristol, 20th Century Flicks is a film lovers’ paradise.
We were massive fans of Channel 4 documentary The Hotel which charted the quirky goings on at The Grosvenor Hotel in Torquay. Billed as a real life Fawlty Towers, let’s just say things didn’t go to plan most of the time for manager Mark Jenkins and his trusty sidekick Alison Pennell. We thoroughly enjoyed tuning in each week to watch Mark’s efforts to change the business’ fortunes whether it be the unforgettable dolphin racing in the pool or the chaotic bingo and disco nights in the hotel lounge.
At a recent dinner hosted by the Lexington Medical Society, Kentucky Republican Andy Barr told a room full of 100 physicians that no patients would lose their health insurance or face higher premiums if the GOP’s health care repeal plan became law. That’s just a lie, and one of the many reasons Democrats are lining up to run against him in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
