THE imagination of science-fiction writers has been wowing us and giving us the heebie-jeebies in equal measure for yonks. Most recently this has been evident in Channel 4’s futuristic series Electric Dreams, which brings to life the works and fascinating visions of prolific sci-fi author Philip K Dick, and continues this Sunday with executive producer Bryan Cranston starring in episode Human Is, whose themes cover space colonisation and psyche replacement.
AS a nation, we love nothing more than watching other people cooking, whether it’s contestants stressing over soggy bottoms on Bake Off or dinner guests scoffing at a shop-bought dessert on Come Dine With Me. While top chefs can whip up a memorable meal using little more than a good set of utensils and pans, there’s no shame in amateur cooks getting a bit of help.
FREEVIEW has been gracing TVs and set-top boxes with free-to-air digital terrestrial programmes since 2015. But to stay relevant in today’s on-demand world, it has Freeview Play to include web-based catch-up and on-demand content. Chances are you may not have heard of it, given it was necessary to buy a set-top box or have one of the few new TVs with it installed to have it work.
After 12 hours of celebrating RAW’s 25th anniversary at various events/press junkets throughout the day and working through most of the night post show, the plug sockets are beginning to look like faces and I’m officially going insane!! Enough!! BED!! https://t.co/H8agH3uioG
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".
