Visit Chameleon for the cocktails, but not the food, says Gaby SoutarLizards can be as cute as kittens. Just search YouTube for “chameleon likes popping bubbles,” and you will see the evidence. Despite this, they are pretty unconventional beasts, with that insect-grabbing tongue, 360 degree vision and, of course, their ability to change colour to suit their surroundings. That’s the skill this new restaurant, from the team behind Seasons on Broughton Street, is hoping to emulate.
Ignore the fact that it's in a shopping centre, Epoch is great, says Gaby SoutarAnyone who’s seen zombie film Dawn of the Dead or read Stephen King’s The Mist, will know that shopping centres can occupy a dark place in some people’s psyche. I understand why. I’m not a fan of the mall experience, mainly because of the lack of windows, and the Escher-esque stairs and escalators that seem designed so you’ll go in circles and never find the exit. WHERE IS THE EXIT?
Eat your weight in truffles at The Ivy on the Square, says Gaby SoutarDid anyone ever tune in to Channel 5’s daytime telly fave The Restaurant Inspector? It was presented by director of The Ivy, restaurateur Fernando Peire. Back in 2012, he came to Edinburgh to try to reinvigorate Spanish eatery Iggs. The premise of the series went as follows. In the style of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, Peire would visit a restaurant, simplify the menu and paint the place in a non-offensive neutral shade. Voila!
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".
