The election of Donald Trump has left some Americans thunderstruck in the same way as the UK's vote for Brexit stunned those British voters who could not imagine a future outside the European Union. But disappointed Remainers have found ways of coping. What survival tips can they offer to their counterparts across the Atlantic? "I was basically in shock initially. I really didn't think it was going that way," says Ravi Palanisamy, remembering the morning after the Brexit vote in June.
Comedian Seann Walsh has promised to buy everyone a drink who missed his show in Hertford because he went to the wrong venue in Hereford. The 28-year-old ended up 150 miles away from Hertford theatre, where he was due to perform on Friday, travelling instead to Hereford. "I will literally buy everyone a drink. That is a solid half promise," he said. He also revealed he'd turned down an offer of a lift from his support act so he could use the time to read a book.
On the night of 29 September 1994, seven-year-old Nicholas Green was shot dead during a family holiday in southern Italy.

"Hopefully something positive can happen with North Korea. Thank you for everything. You've been incredible. I will let you know in the absolute strongest of terms and I will never ever ever let you down" Trump adds concluding his speech #CPAC2018
"I've been watching for a long time. I've seen a lot of words and very little action. It's all common sense and some of the strongest advocates about what I'm saying are the strongest advocates for the second amendment" #CPAC2018
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".
