1. When did you realise you wanted to be a chef? It wasn’t a case of a “calling” so much as being a teenager and needing to work. I was hired as a pot wash in a local pub, worked hard and fell in love with the atmosphere in the kitchen. It was my head chef who inspired me. He noticed my work ethic and taught me some skills. Tom Aikens is a chef he really looked up to so he encouraged me to move to London and get a job with him. 3. Do you think it’s imperative to work with the best chefs to become one?
South Wales was once a prosperous coal country. Now, it is one of the most deprived areas in the UK, and heritage sites are the only reminders of the industry which shaped the region for generations. Though the coal pits have been closed for nearly four decades, little has been done to address the suffering left behind in many former mining communities.
From 1947 until 1977, there was a 30 year period where America boomed. Our economy was thriving and education was growing. This time in our history was coined The Great Prosperity. And Bill Clinton’s former US Secretary of Labor Robert Reich suggests that it was in those 30 years that we struck gold in reducing economic inequality. My introduction into Reich’s economic ideas began in the film documentary Inequality for All.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
