Eagle-eyed fans of BBC2's topical comedy series The Mash Report may have spotted a familiar Harrogate face starring on national TV last night. Hosted by Nish Kumar, the satirical spoof news programme written by the team behind The Daily Mash is packed with comedic talent - Ellie Taylor, Steve N Allen, Rachel Parris and Geoff Norcott. But who was the impressively bearded chap giving 'expert advice' on alternative (ie rude) names for wildlife last night to good effect?
Frazer Theatre is offering, perhaps, its strongest-ever programme of shows this new season – especially if you are a fan of Queen. Rated as one of the UK’s best performers of the classic songs of Freddie Mercury, Brian My and co, Bulsara and His Queenies hit Knaresborough on Friday, February 9. This acclaimed five-piece, yes five-piece, eschew the normal wigs and tights tribute act routine in favour of getting the actual music of Queen spot on.
Last year more than 200 young people were referred to SASH’s Nightstop emergency accommodation scheme in North Yorkshire; more than a quarter of these in the Harrogate area. But the charity currently only has two Nightstop ‘hosts’ in Harrogate which is putting the service under severe pressure. Director Peter Robinson said: “Nightstop is a vital service that keeps very vulnerable young people safe at a time of crisis in their lives and we desperately need more people in Harrogate to help.
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".
