Saddle up for some flavoursome grub at The Fat Pony, says Gaby SoutarThe handful of times I’ve been on a trek, I would slowly slide off if my mount went faster than a trot. One time, aged about seven, I was dragged along with one foot in a stirrup, silent and resigned, head bumping off my Norman Thelwell-esque steed’s chubby flank. Feeble thighs. It’s a Soutar affliction. Owner of Edinburgh’s 10-year-old eatery The Dogs, restaurateur David Ramsden has recently added to his menagerie with this place.
Edinburgh's newest Italian restaurant, Radici, is the perfect venue for big birthdays, says Gaby SoutarCan you put a sparkler on her dessert or something?” I asked on the phone to this new Italian restaurant. Argh, the difficulties in explaining that, on your visit, it’ll be your sister’s birthday and you want to do something cheesy and unsophisticated, through a language barrier/dodgy phone line.
The food doesn't quite match the decor at Rabble Taphouse & Grill, says Gaby Soutar“No chips or wine for us,” the woman sitting next to us said to the waitress, “We’ve got to be good.” Jeez, how to inadvertently make your neighbours feel guilty about what they’re planning to order. I’m already halfway through my very effective Mexican Firing Squad cocktail (£8.95), which contains a lethal slosh of Patron Blanco tequila, lime, and probably 36 cubes worth of sugar in the form of raspberry syrup.
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".
