As Christmas season approaches, ice rinks across the country will have been popping up for festive events. Here we have a run down of 10 of the best skating arenas around the world where you can enjoy the seasonal past time. LONDON has at least eight Christmas ice rinks this year including Somerset House, the Tower of London and the Natural History Museum, as well as Hampton Court and two at Canary Wharf. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is our pick.
BY 5pm on Christmas Day, we'll probably have eaten our own body weight in turkey and trimmings and be slumped in front of the telly. But it does not have to be this way - you can blow away the cobwebs with a bracing stroll across some of the UK's most spectacular scenery. The National Trust has lovely winter walks to get you fit and fabulous. Godolphin Hill, Cornwall: Take a gentle ramble to the top of Godolphin Hill which boasts one of the best views of West Cornwall.
So why not get away from it all and count down to 2018 somewhere more exotic? It’s not too late to toast 2017 from a beach in balmy Jamaica or aboard a Mediterranean cruise ship dropping in on cities including Rome with its Colosseum. We’ve scoured the web for the best last minute bargains. From Alpine parties and cosy English cottages, we have a lastminute deal to suit every taste. How about a two-night party break for singletons?
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".
