Starbucks has announced that it’ll be offering people who work in the emergency services a permanent 10% discount in all of their branches across the UK and Ireland. You might not be able to click on your computer without a caffeine hit but it’s our ambulance workers, police force, and NHS personnel who have to work godforsaken hours to keep us alive and safe. It’s them who need that sweet, cheap(ish) coffee the most.

When it was cold and miserable, you were in the deepest throws of love – snuggling up together in your parka jackets and making use of the extra body warmth. Now the weather is finally improving, however, it seems like that love is also beginning to defrost and fizzle. Why? Because, friends, spring marks the start of ‘uncuffing season’. The flowers might be springing up but your winter love is dead.
Share this article with Google PlusOur oceans are positively choking with plastic pollution. In the Mediterranean alone, we’re experiencing a ‘plastic smog’, with experts predicting that by 2050, there’ll be more plastic than fish in the sea. But some of this trash can actually be reused – and many of us want to see it being recycled. Just look at Adidas; last year the sportswear giant launchedÂ a range of trainers made from ocean plastic, and they’ve already sold over a million pairs.
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".
