Victims of the Grenfell Tower fire will have payments for incinerated furniture cancelled following outrage that they were still being charged. Sofa retailer DFS and Barclays, which provides loans for customers to pay for furniture, have cancelled bills they had intended to collect from those who lost their homes in last week’s devastating fire, the Standard has learned.
Adam Gillett is talking about nipple pads. Or rather, he’s talking about how comfortable he is discussing nipple pads. “When we started, I was like ‘er, how do I deal with this’ but it becomes second nature very quickly. If you’re sitting with a company that makes nipple pads and you’re a bloke who’s never been a father it makes for interesting conversations,” he says. Gillett, bulky, cheery and geezer-ish, is one of the owners of Fanfinders which runs Your Baby Club.
A move upmarket and an expansion into America has helped cab firm Addison Lee to fight off the rise of Uber and post a bounce in sales, it said today. Just-filed accounts show that fares received in the year to last August fell 7.5% to £259.5 million with profits at £53.9 million. But the company said that revenues will be “around a third” higher this year and profits will grow, without giving specific figures. It was acquired for £300 million by US private-equity group Carlyle in 2013 .
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".
