Restaurant owners Claudio and Joanne Celino are set to host a massive fundraising night this week in aid of their beloved young niece, Ciara. The youngster was just 13 when she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a rare and debilitating genetic condition which has had a huge impact on her life. Now 16, Ciara daily has to deal with issues even the strongest of adults would find hard to face.
We love Glasgow, but we've got to admit we get a bit sick of the weather now and then. And if, like us, you've had enough of the snow and rain, this job opportunity should get you feeling a wee bit sunnier. Imagine ditching the unpredictable Scottish summer for nine weeks living it up in the USA. Well Glasgow, imagine no more because this dream could soon be your reality if you head along to the Smaller Earth Camp Leaders job fair in the city tomorrow!
We all know Glasgow is the place to be for vegans and vegetarians. The city is packed full of delicious eateries which cater to those who prefer a meat-free diet. But let's be honest here, sometimes it's nice just to go home after a hard day of work, get your jammies on and heat something up in the oven. And pizza giant Goodfellas just made things a whole lot easier for vegans and veggies by launching the first ever UK mainstream vegan frozen pizza.
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".
