St Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and it is that reminder to the singles maybe they need to try and get that date. And while you may spot people holding hands, swapping presents and clearly very happy, remember that it is not always such smooth sailing in the journey for love. Readers have given us their well-intentioned, if sometimes misguided, attempts at finding The One. Our first Casanova wannabe has a bit of advice with their tale. Get the location right.
Gloucester is blessed with its scenery, but sometimes it isn't the easiest to get around when carrying a tot on wheels. But with the weather (hopefully) looking to be on the turn for the better, we have picked out our favourites trip that are four-wheels friendly. Another buggy walk for the parents with a ton of energy that know that their little one will love it when they reach the play areas on the ever popular Robinswood Hill.
Cafe Rene has long been one of Gloucester's most iconic venues. Its wine bottle ceiling, intimate cellar bar, great food and passion for live, local music ensures its appeal is wide and enduring. At the heart of the Southgate Street pub and restaurant is its bar manager Chris Atine. Thirteen years ago he was offered a couple of casual shifts there, and he hasn't looked back since.
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".
