Tom Chambers has just sat down in the make-up chair, but we’ve already heard about his five-week no-booze accomplishment, his Tom Daley-inspired mega-green diet, his love of Goodnight Mister Tom, and why he likes his lime cordial to arrive separately from his soda water (in case they over-lime it, obviously). Tom’s reprising the role of head consultant Sam Strachan in Casualty, since leaving its sister hospital show Holby City over 10 years ago.
Vicky Pattison is sitting cross-legged on a sofa, shoes off, a muffin in one hand, biting choc-chip residue out of her glittery pink fingernails on the other. Yep, there are no airs and graces when it comes to this one. And it seems to be just the thing that propelled her from reality TV star to fully fledged ‘nation’s sweetheart’ status in record time.
Today was an interesting day. I had interactions with 2 different entrepreneurs in an episode that confirmed success in business is completely connected to your state of mind. If you think you'll succeed or fail, it follows that you absolutely will. Let me explain. I wrote to an entrepreneur who had been on one of our trade missions to ask if he might speak at an upcoming event. His reply was quite wonderful.
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".
