Scottish comedian Susan Calman said she never quite fit in the world of corporate law. She is gay, doesn’t like going to posh bars and felt like a square peg in a round hole. So 11 years ago she packed it in to try her hand at comedy and these days is known for her stand-up and shows on Radio 4. The 42-year-old will bring The Calman Before The Storm to Greenwich Theatre on Monday, June 26, dealing with expectations, homophobia and inequality. We caught up with Susan to find out more.
Once home to Olympic athletes, East Village is now a haven for foodies. A stone’s throw from Westfield Stratford City and the Olympic Park in Stratford it has been transformed into a series of wide streets lined with a host of independent traders. We went down to find out what they have to offer. Opening a juice and health food restaurant has been more than a successful business venture for co-owner Jack Cahit Tok.
It is rather fitting that the design for London Dock was fuelled by tea. Once a bustling import point for the beverage, giraffes, elephants, diamonds and much more the 15 acre site is now being transformed by St George into a development of 1,800 homes. New International’s buildings, where Piers Morgan edited redtops, have been razed to the ground and work is well underway on the 10-year project.
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".
