Lumpy gravy, huge jugs of yellow custard, and a squashed sandwich wrapped in tin foil: nothing is quite as evocative as a school dinner. But new graphics reveal just how much these very memorable lunches changed over the years since they were first dished out to British pupils in 1906 following the School Meals Act. From a measly slice of bread with dripping, to a lot of spam during the rationing years, these are the typical school dinners that hundreds of thousands of people grew up with.
Cupcakes may be simple to make but the slightest error can lead to a baking catastrophe. The sweet treats can easily end up rock hard or undercooked if your oven isn't at the right setting, or end up a soggy mess if you haven't weighed out your ingredients properly. But now the British Standards Institution (BSI) has shared what it claims is a formula for the perfect cupcakes every time.
He's rowed across the Atlantic, raced to the South Pole and crossed the Empty Quarter on a camel. But one adventure Ben Fogle is yet to attempt is learning how to cook properly. The London-based explorer, author and broadcaster, 43, has admitted in a revealing interview with BBC Good Food magazine that when his wife Marina leaves him home alone, he sometimes eats leftover rations from his expeditions 'out of laziness'.
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".
