My late grandma never missed the weather forecast on TV. In fact, she never missed either of the evening weather bulletins – the one after Six O’Clock television news on RTÉ and the other one after the Nine O’Clock News. Long after she was finished venturing outside very much she still needed to catch the forecast at least twice a day, even though it had absolutely no impact on her daily life. She was, it is fair to say, obsessed with the weather. And she was not alone. It is a national obsession.
Would you like to go away and think about it ? Do you want to take his body home? Would you like to keep his ashes? Do you want to stay with him? I shook my head at each question and the vet asked the work experience student to leave the small surgery. It was obvious by question three that I wasn’t going to be able to able to keep my composure when I brought Tadgh to the vet to be euthanised, or put to sleep as they call it.
Dublin needs to have a directly elected mayor and the Government needs to support Opposition proposals for one, a Fine Gael MEP has said. Brian Hayes, who represents Dublin in Brussels, said Dubliners should be given an “opportunity to decide on how the city is governed.”A long-delayed report on local government that addresses the issue of an elected mayor in the capital is due to be delivered to Minister of State for Local Government John Paul Phelan in early November ahead of its publication.
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".
