This has been National Warhol Week. The notorious American wonder boy of Pop, whose painting of a tin of soup fetched £25,000 at a recent auction, has moved in on London in a typical blaze of stealthy publicity. Not only is there a full-scale exhibition of paintings at the Tate Gallery; there are early (and hitherto almost unknown) drawings at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, prints at the Mayfair, and even a set of snapshot souvenirs at the Photographers’ Gallery. Only the films are missing.
The unemployment figure for Dundee was reduced by one last Tuesday when John McKaig, skilled engineer, was given a job as a coalman. He says he was lucky. It took as long to train Mr McKaig as it takes to train a doctor. At his last job in his own trade his wages were £9 8s a week plus overtime plus an output bonus. He expects his wages this week to be £8 plus nothing; and that is a good deal better than the dole at £5 a week for a man with a wife and two children.
How politically committed is Barbara Windsor, the Cockney actress who stars in all those “Carry On” films? Having opened in the film “The Boy Friend” last week, Miss Windsor opens in London on Thursday in a new production of Brecht’s highly political play “The Threepenny Opera”, his satirical attack on corruption in the Weimar Republic. Vanessa Redgrave is in it too, which doesn’t surprise us. “Well, dear,” said Miss Windsor, “I’ve always voted Conservative, if that’s what you mean.
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".
