We're all in for a tense wait on Coronation Street this week as Carla's op takes centre stage - but there's plenty of drama. As Carla and Aidan have their operations, the Connor family and Roy wait nervously to find out if the organ transplant has worked in Coronation Street this week. Later, Johnny is having second thoughts about moving to Spain.
It’s 10 years since Ali turned up on the Street and told Michelle he was her son. After a mix-up at the hospital where he and Ryan were born 15 years earlier, another family took him home. Michelle later told Ryan she wasn’t his biological mum but failed to bond with Ali and sent him back to his first family. Now Ali (James Burrows) is a trainee doctor, and treats Michelle’s cut hand. But what does he want?
My son Jonathan started secondary school last year, and like any parent, I was anxious. But I needn’t have worried – he’s already a bit famous there. He came home recently and told me about some boys being jealous of the attention he got from Year 8 girls! Jonathan is bright – cleverer than me – and his poetry is amazing. But he’s not a wise sage all the time, he’s a naughty 11-year-old underneath it all, who is fun to be with. Although it could’ve all been so different, he was silent for so long.
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".
