In an attempt to take you all out of your comfort zones, our Secret London series uncovers little-known locations in the city and beyond. This week, we explore The Queen's Gallery, an overlooked regal cultural powerhouse located inside Buckingham Palace. Why on earth does The Queen need her own gallery? Simple, Her Maj owns lots and lots of art. Well, sort of.
Londoners save the dates because on Friday December 8 and Saturday December 9, the chicken burger legends at Other Side Fried are giving away free patties to celebrate the launch of its new site at brand new creative hangout Peckham Levels. Free food? Yes, free food indeed, but be warned: Only 100 are available on both days on a first-come, first-served basis.
Heavyweight connoisseur of all things vegan Sean O'Callaghan (aka Fat Gay Vegan) has joined forces with the green-fingered girls and boys at Camden Market to create London's (and the UK's) first ever specialist vegan deli pop-up. Simply named Festive Vegan Deli, the animal-free powerhouse will burst into life every Thursday between now and Christmas. So what's on offer? Everything from artisanal meat and dairy-free cheese from some of the finest producers in the land. That's what.
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".
