Using Page 3 girls to promote breast cancer awareness is a clever move by The Sun. It highlights a very worthy cause. It’s also offensive, disingenuous and downright manipulative. Taking people’s traumatic experiences of cancer and twisting them to foster support for a sexist, outdated institution is low, even by tabloid standards. Screaming PAGE 3 V BREAST CANCER, their headline implied that if you didn’t support Page 3, then you must be in favour of breast cancer.
Restaurant chain Burger and Lobster has had to rethink its menu because people could not understand the concept of ordering either a burger or lobster. The Burger and Lobster chain previously allowed diners to order either a burger or lobster – both cost £20. There’s no menu – you just say whether you want burger or lobster (or a lobster roll) . As well as being their unique selling point, this way of ordering a meal is also meant to save diners and servers both time and confusion. Or perhaps not.
It doesn’t matter how much therapy I have or how much personal development I do, as soon as I walk through my parents’ front door, I’m eight-years-old again and feel like Kevin McAllister from Home Alone. The thing is, I am young when it comes to learning how to be with people without performing in some way. Christmas is this extended holiday period where the focus is almost entirely on socialising.
Ukip are the party of climax, they are just constantly climaxing everywhere. Tories are kind of the endless joyless determined hard frictiony shag, Labour are meanwhile busy fucking themselves and Lib Dems can't get it up. I'll be a politics columnist yet
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".
