Fish and seafood are not just good for your body, they are good for the soul too. On a hot sunny day, nothing is more uplifting than a dozen oysters or half a pint of shrimps (preferably washed down with some fizz). We are always being told to eat more fish and seafood, but the environmental impact of sea-to-plate eating is of growing concern. While there are, quite literally, plenty of fish in the sea, some are more popular than others leading to overfishing and threatening populations.
For all its excellent Indian restaurants, it has taken until now for a restaurant to open in central London that puts all its energy into the humble biryani. Dum Biryani, which has just arrived on Wardour Street, is the place that has finally done it. And Dhruv Mittal, who was born to southern Indian parents in Manchester, and has worked at The Fat Duck, Hibiscus and Restaurant Sat Bains, is the man making it happen.
It's a little over eight years since the first Comptoir Libanais arrived in Marylebone, and the group has just opened its 10th central London site (they're also in Heathrow and Gatwick). There are more on the way, too, funded by an £8m stock market flotation last summer.
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".
