A painting illustrating the ‘powerful iconography of abolition’ is set to go on display in the city after the International Slavery Museum was awarded a significant grant to fund its arrival. The £50,000 bestowed to Liverpool’s waterfront museum follows a joint effort by Art Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Collecting Cultures Programme. Dating back to 1800, the ‘Am Not I A Man and A Brother’ painting is set to appear by the end of the year.
Liverpool and China’s links are historic and strong, and a parade to signal the beginning of the Chinese New Year celebrations was held on Saturday. With the official commemorations being held this weekend, and to mark the arrival of the Terracotta Warriors at Liverpool’s World Museum, a traditional Chinese New Year display made its way through the streets of the city centre, attracting the attention of shoppers.
Remembrance Sunday brought people together throughout the region and far beyond to commemorate the fallen soldiers who risked their lives for this country, and ‘for our tomorrow, gave their today’. On a bright but chilly day, thousands of people gathered outside the Cenotaph on St George’s Plateau for the annual service in the city, watching in silent awe as red poppies fell from the top of the grand hall and wreaths were laid to rest.
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".
