A THREE-wheeled Italian van laden with chilled prosecco is the brainchild of businesswoman Pippa Yeates. She came up with the idea for the Bubble & Squeak prosecco ‘boutique’ after searching for a way to combine her passions with the desire to run a business. Pippa, from Ensbury Park in Bournemouth, is a keen festival-goer and a lover of food and drink. “I was working in retail management but I’ve done a lot of festival and event work as well,” she said.
A FORMER Beales employee, whose work on window displays and Christmas parades delighted thousands, returned to the store more than 60 years later. Dennis Parratt, now 92, was deputy display manager at the Bournemouth department store in the days when crowds gathered to look at its seasonal windows. Working there from 1951-60, he also laboured for months on the Christmas parades that brought the town to a standstill.
BOURNEMOUTH and Poole are missing from a list of potential “digital super towns” – because their councils are not yet part of a powerful “combined authority”. A report for Vodafone ranked key towns and cities as “pacesetters”, “pillars” and “prospects” when it came to developing the digital economy. But the study, Digital Super Towns: Unlocking the UK’s Digital Potential, omitted Bournemouth and Poole, despite successive Tech Nation reports pointing to its high-growth digital sector.
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".
