Most adults have a maths age of between eight and a half and ten and a half, according to Richard Marrett, managing director of Whizz Education. This is the level that corresponds with the maths that most of us use in our every day lives to add up the shopping, do the tax return and figure out how much to tip the waiter. It might not just be our children, then, who are in need of an online maths tutor.
24hourlondon will be following this up with some hyper-local marketing (or leafleting as it used to be known – but with 24hourlondon beermats) and are on the lookout for offer number two. House of Tippler also does fab ham croquettes, which are possibly the best beer snack in the world. If you think you know a better one you'll be treated with due scepticism but we will investigate...You could also let us know what you think of the app: we take criticism on the chin and are open to suggestions.
This made it the fifth central London borough to bring in this measure: Hackney, City of London, Islington and Camden already have the levy, asking their venues to pay between £299 and £4,400 a year to support the police on top of the nine existing taxes they pay that already do exactly this - and this all despite a promise from the mayor Sadiq Khan, to support the night-time economy . See below for a list of these taxes.
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".
