Enjoy the first and best meal of the day at Finn & Bear, says Gaby SoutarIt’s stocked with about five different varieties, from the bulk oaty variety, via a brown-sugar crusted granola and a puffed rice thing with coconut shavings. In the morning, I make a layered creation, as if I was doing a school project about the earth’s strata or making a luxury wormery. After years of this diet, I am now half human, half squirrel.
Treat your mum to Mara's food this Mother's Day, says Gaby SoutarMy mother is clever, wonderful and very good at lots of things. (Hi Mum!). However, even though I probably won’t get my 50p per week pocket money after saying this, cooking ain’t her forte. If we go round for Sunday lunch, she always forgets to put the potatoes on, and, like many other children of the Seventies and Eighties, growing up I subsisted on Pop Tarts, Angel Delight (butterscotch, naturally) and Findus Crispy Pancakes.
Eat worms and crocodile pie at the new branch of Bodega, says Gaby Soutar“Yes, and we’re out of alligators too,” says the patient waiter. On our visit to the new Tollcross branch of Bodega, they were sold out of crocodile pie (£5), and I was just wondering if that was because of a shortage of the eponymous ingredient. I bet every annoying wise-cracking diner asks that.
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".
