Food Review: Not Veggie? You Might Be Once You've Eaten In HereIf you're teetering on the edge of vegetarianism but find can't quite commit to a life of soggy quiche, bland goats cheese tarts and yet another mushroom risotto, then an epic sitting at Tibits buffet should be enough to excite the inner veggie in you.
Sophie is 25, her mauve hair is scraped into a bun. When we introduce ourselves she is standing outside her door with her 10-month-old balanced on her hip. She doesn't hold back when we ask what it's like to live at Marston Court, "I don't really like it — I was living in a hostel before, in a big double room, which was probably better than this, space and storage-wise," she says. Inside, there are just two living spaces for Sophie and her two boys, plus a cupboard-sized bathroom at the back.
The traditional ice-cream trade is under threat‘The decline of the ice-cream van really started when councils started clamping down on illegal street trading. Then Jamie Oliver and the plan to tackle obesity impacted where we could trade. Now there’s talk of banning ice-cream vans outside schools because of the engine fumes.
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".
