When the hotel you’re staying at has a pillow and mattress menu in your room, it’s clear comfort is the top priority. And choosing between the “hypoallergenic properties of pure virgin wool”, “natural rubber foam flakes” or “duck down and feathers” is about the biggest headache you’ll have while staying at Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort. It oozes serenity and immediately feels as though you’re a world away from the rat race of London on arrival.
Television presenter Maya Jama has warned young women not to measure themselves against “fake” images online, saying: “Even the perfect people aren’t that perfect.”Jama, 23, who is dating grime star Stormzy, said she can still feel insecure after scrolling through images of other celebrities on social media. But she urged young women not to put pressure on themselves. She told the Standard: “Of course sometimes I put on a dress and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I look terrible’.
It is an image that lays bare the sheer hypocrisy of today’s crippling rail strikes. For here is Mick Lynch, assistant general secretary of the RMT, blithely riding to work on one of the very trains that his militant union claims are too dangerous for the public. Hundreds of thousands of commuters across Britain were left stranded this morning in the worst disruption for decades as the RMT guards walked out on five networks - from long-suffering Southern to Merseyrail.
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".
