If you're holding out for a pricey Fortnum & Mason hamper this Christmas, a budget supermarket has revealed how you can bag your very own one, for £110 less, with mince pies, puddings, and all. In a cost comparison, Iceland looked at ingredients from Fortnum & Mason's 'Christmas at Highgrove Hamper' and compared it with its own 'luxury food' range - which it says is benchmarked against 'premium brands and retailers'.
A number of EE customers are to see their broadband and landline packages jump in the New Year, as a series of new changes kick in. The telecoms giant said all customers on these plans are to be switched over to new "pricing structures" on 16 January - with some households to see bills rise, and in other cases drop, as a result.
The budget supermarket has revealed how you can make your own luxury hamper without breaking the bank. The Fortnum and Mason Christmas hamper comes in at an eye-watering £175 and that's one of their cheaper options. Thankfully, Iceland are on hand to help create your Christmas hampers on a budget with their new DIY guide, complete with festive wines, mince pies and puddings. The hamper, using Iceland products, comes in at just £65, making a saving of £110 compared to Fortnum's festive offering.
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".
