Every day, for years on end, Heidi Hamm would spend a few minutes tidying the room that her kids played in. Typically, it’d be covered in Lego, other toys, and clothes - and, over time, Heidi probably spent countless hours making the room look ship shape after a long day. At one point, her husband walked in to find her crawling around the floor picking up Lego bricks, and colour co-ordinating them because she loved to be organised.
An Airbnb landlord in London made £12m in a single year - thanks to income from almost 900 rental properties across the capital. New research says the unnamed individual pulled in £11.9m from a portfolio of 881 properties.

A landlord in Bali was a close second, banking £11.8m through 504 properties in Bali.
The weekly ‘big shop’ can be a major chore. Cramming into a packed supermarket on a Saturday afternoon, using your trolley to joust with other shoppers, with only the thought of pigging out when you get home carrying you through. But now a branch of Morrisons is offering a service which makes the weekly shop sound positively exciting. Their Guiseley store in West Yorkshire has opened up a bar called Barista which will let you sup a cold one while you meander the aisles.
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".
