It is true that there are many winkers in politics. The DUP’s Ian Paisley Jr, for one, appeared to wink at Theresa May [subscription] in the House of Commons on Monday as the Tories’ deal with the unionist party was outlined. Winking is a risky move – the response can range from warm solidarity to outright contempt. Even when the intentions of a wink are good, being a bit creeped-out is entirely acceptable.
First, lunch was for wimps (as espoused by Wall Street sociopaths, circa 1987), then lunch was an opportunity for “unplanned collaborations” (Steve Jobs’ idea that accidental and social meetings fuelled ideas). Now, lunch is apparently a philanthropic act. Michael Bloomberg is hoping to encourage employees at the new £1.1bn Norman Foster-designed offices of his financial media company to get away from their desks and go outside the building for lunch.
High temperatures, well into the evening, affect your body's natural cooling process as you prepare for sleep. "The body normally releases heat through hands, face and feet around the time of sleep onset, and usually continues to cool until around 4am," says Dr Chris Idzikowski, director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre and author of Sound Asleep. "If anything prevents that decrease in temperature, then sleep quality is impaired and it is difficult to fall asleep."
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".
