Tonight, as he makes his debut as co-host of Channel 4’s relaunched The Great British Bake Off, Noel Fielding will complete one of the more unexpected career transitions in recent television history. Displaying what early reviewers have dubbed a winning combination of Tigger-like enthusiasm and offbeat humour, Fielding looks likely to prove a hit with the baking show’s audience.
On Sunday August 13, Charlottesville restaurateur Brian Ashworth watched nervously as six suspected far-Right sympathisers loitered outside his Ace Biscuit & Barbecue establishment having just eaten inside. Although cordial enough during their meal, Ashworth remained concerned about the group; the previous day’s Unite the Right rally in the Virginia city had left one person dead and 19 hurt when a speeding car was driven, apparently deliberately, into a crowd of anti-fascist counter-protestors.
Probably Campbell’s best-loved song, Wichita Lineman was another Jimmy Webb collaboration. Over sweeping strings reminiscent of those on By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Campbell assumes the character of a solitary telephone repairman working on a line in a dustbowl town. "And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time," he sings. It’s a heart-stopping song about love, loneliness and the importance of well-maintained rural telecommunications systems.
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".
