This week's Time magazine has one of those striking cover images that bears all the hallmarks of being one that will live on for years to come. Though "Man. Superman. Gunman" refers, quite obviously, to Oscar Pistorius, the very lengthy article considers the wider topic of South Africa's culture of violenceThe magazine's Africa bureau chief, Alex Perry, takes an in-depth look at the country's complicated history with race relations, inequality and violence.
Mail Online is expected to post record-breaking traffic figures for August. I understand that the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday website exceeded more than 100m unique browsers last month. It came close to the 100m mark in January, recording 99,218,476 monthly browsers. In subsequent months, it averaged about 91m, rising to 93.7m in July. So the admittedly unaudited 100m-plus figure - fuelled, doubtless, by the London Olympics - would represent a significant breakthrough.
ONE of the last links to Brighton’s bohemian, artistic past has died aged 87. Gordon Anderson was the long-time companion of the late William de Belleroche, who held court at his seafront house in Kemp Town in the 1950s and 1960s. A host of artists and assorted celebrities regularly gathered at the Arundel Terrace home of Count Willy. He inherited the French title from his artist father, Albert. Gordon, always known as Andy, was Willy’s secretary and chauffeur.
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".
