Festive fun doesn’t finish at Christmas. Oh no. Keep the fun going and celebrate right up until the end of 2017 and into 2018 with our pick of New Year’s parties and events. There are options for an awesome New Year’s Eve on Sunday 31 December as well as a selection of celebrations for the day itself. One of the newest bars on Deansgate is getting dirty for New Year’s Eve. £5 martinis from 11pm -1am, a complimentary glass of prosecco before 9pm and DJs on the decks until 3am.
Christmas time is meat time. It’s time for pigs in blankets, goose, turkey, duck and multi-bird roasts, where different types of bird are stuffed inside a bigger one. So you probably think vegans and vegetarians like me can feel a bit left out at this time of year, crying into our tofu. Nothing could be further from the truth. Because there are plenty of places serving festive dishes which are strictly meat- and cruelty-free. So stuff the turkey.
Clara Basoni has travelled around the world pursuing her love of punk. She is a character who could be seen as not just well travelled, but wondrously so. The 46 year old dedicated punk fell in love with the genre whilst growing up in 70s Paris, but it has shaped her journeys ever since- and her love of punk punctuated her travels– from time at The Sorbonne, to studying in ex-USSR and even a time at Old Trafford college.
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".
