Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan has revealed how a hair-raising attempt in his teens to 'get lucky' at a party in Belfast left him in serious pain. The Co Down actor devised an unusual plan to look older in a bid to pull a girl – but instead, ended up pulling out his pubic hair. Speaking on the Graham Norton Show tonight, the star of The Fall and Fifty Shades, said: “I was quite small and wasn’t hairy at all – I was 15 and looked seven.
Popular radio host Johnny Hero has revealed that his first ever gig as a DJ saw him replace a group of West Belfast nuns on the decks. The U105 presenter, who is celebrating 40 years as a DJ this year, was just 16 when he took over from the nuns, who had been playing the tunes at his local youth club disco up to that point. And that regular slot spinning discs prompted him to pursue a career in music broadcasting and to join a number of bands, two of which he is still part of today.
Up and coming pop-star Jake Carter has revealed that his country singing sensation brother Nathan is the first person he goes to for advice about his career – despite their different music genres. The 19-year-old - who relocated to Northern Ireland from Liverpool six months ago – said his older brother was always on hand to offer support and encouragement and that the pair were lucky to have each other to confide in.
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".
