One under-reported problem of being a farmer is that your stock is exposed in the open air, therefore easily snatched by any passing vegetable burglar with a hunger for raw spud in their rumbling belly. However Nottinghamshire farmer Tom Hammond has come up with an ingenious solution: leaving a horrifying message that warns of terrible fertility problems should you consume the stolen potatoes. “Dear thief, these crops are sprayed weekly with chemicals that could make you impotent.
This evening’s Irish Derby (5.20pm) may be referred to as the demolition derby in the future with a capacity crowd of 6,000 packed into The Curragh, while the old grandstands are demolished, but on the track we have an ultra-competitive renewal. As well as the English Derby first and third, Wings Of Eagles and Cracksman, we have the French Derby runner-up Waldgeist, who was beaten a fag paper at Chantilly last month by a very good horse in Brametot and is the selection.
Limato heads the market for the Diamond Jubilee Stakes with his trainer Henry Candy aiming to win back-to-back renewals of the race after tasting victory with Twilight Son last year. There’s no question he’s a very solid favourite at 11/4, holding a fair few of these on form and providing the forecast showers steer clear of Ascot on Saturday morning, he’ll get his ideal fast ground.
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".
