Are you a true Glaswegian? And can you spot a Weegie within a matter of minutes of being in their company? In a not-at-all-scientific investigation, we’ve come up with a full-proof method of identifying folk from Scotland’s biggest city. We Glaswegians love to do things differently, and our unique distinctions are admired around the world. Read More From mannerisms to eating and drinking habits, we’ve devised a list of seven ways to spot if someone is really from Glasgow. 1.
As Scotland's largest city, Glasgow welcomes visitors from all over the world. And with some of the best scenery, heritage, culture and food - not to mention some of the world's nicest people - you can see why so many people choose to visit. However, one thing that tourists may struggle with when they visit the city is the broad Glaswegian accent, as well as the invented sayings and shortened words used by those living there.
The summer holidays are nearly over. Kids in Glasgow begin the new school year next week, while teachers are due back to class on Thursday. Pupils and staff will need to wait five weeks before their next holiday - the September weekend on Friday 23 and Monday 26. The first mid-term break will be Monday 17 to Friday 21 October, while pupils and staff will be off during the festive period from Thursday 22, December to Wednesday, January 4 next year.
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".
