TWO intrepid adventurers have completed a marathon journey on the other side of the world in a mammoth fund-raising event. Leading mountaineer Chris Brown and businessman Chris I'Anson cycled the length of New Zealand in 19 days to raise more than £6,000 for mental health charity Claro Enterprises and Parkinson’s UK.
IT must be the ultimate "loo with a view" - but you'll have to spend considerably more than a penny to take advantage of it. A toilet block with views of beautiful Aysgarth Falls in the Yorkshire Dales has come on the market for sale by auction. And with bids of more than £8,000 expected, the scenic - but once septic - location on the banks of the River Ure, offers potential buyers a 100 sq ft building in the heart of the National Park..
ONE of the nation’s best-loved classical vocalists has been announced as the headline act at an al fresco concert. Castle Howard, near York, will welcome Lesley Garrett to its annual prom on August 18. She will join over 120 performers including a 70-piece choir and the London Gala orchestra. Guests are promised plenty of flag-waving and singing, with performances of Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory, when thousands of lasers and fireworks will light up the sky.
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".
