London has at least a dozen statues commemorating footballers. Four of them, for example, can be found in the 1966 World Cup memorial near West Ham's old ground. Many more are dotted around the capital's stadia. Ledley King lurks in Mile End Park. Bobby Moore, meanwhile, is the only footballer to have two London statues â€” one in the World Cup memorial, and one outside Wembley. We wondered what kind of team we could forge (in more than one sense) from combining the might of this metallic squad.
M@ How To Get Covered In Squirrels In London Earlier this month we were playing with London's parakeets, now it's time to sojourn with the squirrels. Armed only with confidence, almonds and a jumbo pack of plasters, we went to find the best location in London for getting covered in squirrels. Last Updated 15 November 2017
The Thames isn't very busy these days. Let's cover it over and create a massive new highway. That was the thinking behind this incredibly ambitious scheme from 1933. It is the brainchild of William Walcot, a successful artist and architect of the early 20th century. In Walcot's vision, the Thames would be removed from central London, its waters diverted along a new canal through south London (see below).
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".
