It's been 20 years since Harry Potter first came into our Muggle world and brightened it with tales of his adventures in the Wizarding World. The magic keeps on going, but if you feel like you need more Harry in your life, or find yourself pining for Hogwarts, look no further - we have the ultimate guide to the gifts and merchandise every superfan yearns for.
We can't believe it's been 20 years since Harry Potter entered our lives, as we celebrate the anniversary of the first publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone . Since then, the franchise exploded to include six more books, as well as the hit films starring Daniel Radcliffe , Emma Watson and Rupert Grint . And while J.K Rowling wrote the final book almost ten years ago and the films are done and dusted, true Potterheads know that the excitement is far from over.
There are almost three million Muslims in the UK, and they have been busy marking holy month of Ramadan , which is observed every year. Many of us know in general terms what the event entails - fasting and prayer are in there, of course, as are family gatherings. But did you know that because the festival is associated with lunar cycles, it moves around 11 days or so every year?
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".
