Tickets for the Glasgow Science Centre’s monthly late night sessions have been flying out the door since the adults-only sessions began earlier this year - and we have a feeling the latest one will be the most popular yet. Head there on Friday, August 4 for an event that’s guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds - and then tell you why. The theme for next month is Taste , complete with mad scientists from Liquid Academy making cocktails out of fire and ice. That’s right - science with a side of booze.
Here at Glasgow Live, we can’t get enough mac and cheese - and doughnuts? Well, they’re pretty high on the list too. Which is why news that a city bar is making MAC AND CHEESE DOUGHNUTS is music to our ears (if not our arteries). Drury Street Bar and Kitchen unveiled a sneak preview of their newest addition to the menu on Facebook - and hundreds of you are already salivating at the thought.
Roadworks are due to start on a major route through the southside this weekend - and motorists are warned that it could spell lengthy queues. Scottish Water will be carrying out network reinforcement works in Polmadie Road from Saturday (July 29) until Sunday, August 13. That means temporary traffic lights operating in stages between Polmadie Street, as well as a signalised junction at Polmadie Cleansing Depot, near Aikenhead Road.
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".
