Humankind has long been fixated on the idea of creating humanoids to do our bidding. This doc suggests we are approaching the age of the “sex robot”, which, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence and robotics, goes way beyond the capacities of a blow-up doll. A giveaway, however, comes when one of its would-be creators speaks of its ability to “recognise her owner”. Technically advanced the dolls may be, but their appeal is to backward sexists.
Bosh: Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty return for a new series, and as they open the doors to their cafe at the end of Southend pier, Simon Pegg drops in. He’s been filming in Morocco so Oliver’s lamb tagine is on the menu, along with a very cheesy Provençal bake. Doherty gets handy with his DIY talents to create a Korean barbecue from a picnic table, and the enthusiastic duo are campaigning for more free-range duck farming.
The king of the self-explanatory property show, George Clarke, returns with more visionary transformations. We’ve seen his architect pals work their magic on 1960s estate homes, but tonight he’s off to Heathfield in Sussex to see if he can sprinkle some magic on a bungalow. Darren and Hannah have limited finances, a leaking roof and a baby on the way. Will architect Carl Turner deliver the project before the waters, in all senses, break?
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".
