So there was a golden double for Mo Farah in 2017 after all. He may have shocked the sporting world by winning only one gold medal rather than his customary two at last summer’s Athletics World Championships in London but he produced a trademark late surge to storm into 2018 in style. Farah has been voted the Liontrust Sporting Hero of the Year to add to his triumph at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony in December. The awards cement his place as the nation’s sporting favourite.
I’m standing on the 11th tee, warm island breezes whipping in from the east. In front of me, across 180metres of sandy bunker and manicured fairway lies a devilishly tough green. It’s a hole that could be plucked straight from any of the great Scottish links courses, and yet I’m standing on what will soon become the most talked-about new golf course on the Indian Ocean coast. Mauritius has become a global hotspot for golf tourism.
Wilson Stuart School from Birmingham posted a handy 258 in the final against Ulverston Victoria High School from the Cumbrian market town – and their total proved just enough as they squeezed home by 10 runs. “It feels amazing to be national table cricket champions,” said Shawn Brittle, captain of the Wilson Stuart team, after they emerged triumphant at the Nursery Pavilion. “I’m extremely proud and couldn’t have asked for a better team. I knew we had it in us.
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".
