While the nation roots for its first British Wimbledon champion in 76 years, one charity could be hoping that Federer takes the title. Oxfam is set to collect £101,840 if Federer wins tomorrow, in a payout from a wager staked nine years ago. Nick Newlife bet £1,520 in 2003 that the Swiss tennis legend - who then had just one Wimbledon title - would win seven or more times. Mr Newlife died in 2009, aged 59, bequeathing his entire estate - including the bet - to Oxfam.
Well, this is a bit of a delayed foodie round-up, so apologies food fans if you’ve been waiting for the news on what’s going on in April. There’s still lots of time though, with plenty of excitement coming up this month, from new openings to special Easter events and the obligatory chocolate treats for this time of year.
We all need an escape sometimes. And what's even better is when the journey to that escape isn't too arduous, yet you immediately feel like you've been transported a million miles away. So we were pleased to discover that that's pretty much what you get when you head out of London and down to the Sussex coast for some R&R at The Gallivant in Camber Sands.
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".
