Strictly lovebirds Mollie King and AJ Pritchard have been snubbed for the live tour. The pair wanted to take part but an insider said Mollie, voted out last week, had no chance with judge Craig Revel Horwood involved. Last month he called the 30-year old singer “awkward and wooden”. The couple have kept viewers guessing about their relationship and claim they are just friends.
We’re getting our first female Doctor Who , so it’s fitting that sexist attitudes are fired back off into the past where they belong. We can reveal that current Doc, Peter Capaldi , will put matters right in the Christmas episode. He will repeatedly tell the first Doctor “You can’t say that” – in what seems to be in reference to the #MeToo movement.
Dame June Whitfield says she watches BBC dramas like Happy Valley with subtitles because she cannot understand the cast mumbling – and blasts smutty TV shows as “filth”. The 92-year-old Absolutely Fabulous star says she is not losing her hearing but struggles with the cacophony of sound on the broadcasts that have drawn so many complaints the issue was debated in the House of Lords. “It’s absolutely dreadful,” she rages. “I often put subtitles on. Definitely with Happy Valley.
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".
