From the best tipples to the ultimate playlist and – most importantly – how to make guests leave, the stars give us their top tips for celebrating Christmas in style…Craig David“My favourite Christmas party tune isn’t a traditional one, it has got to be ‘Show Me Love’ by Robin S (Steve Angello and Laidback Luke Remix). Once that’s playing, make sure there are plenty of drinks and plastic cups, dim the lights and let the speakers bang!
The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime from Friday The second series of the rejigged Top Gear returns to Amazon Prime: and there have been a few changes from series one, including the axing of Celebrity Brain Crash (the segment in which famous guests would be introduced then “killed off”) Whilst the first series followed Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May to far flung places, the studio sections of this series have all been shot in the UK (Amazon said the decision was made due to “sore...
Alex Chinneck’s surreal works include a melting house, an upside-down pylon and a floating house in Covent Garden. He believes that his latest commission, to be unveiled in Sheffield in 2019, is the most ambitious he will ever attempt. Over the course of his relatively short career, the sculptor Alex Chinneck has become known for his audacious projects. They are often so ambitious that, he says, he has lost both money and hair along the way.
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".
