An appalled shopper filmed the events as they unfolded. The video footage shows that customers milling around were repeatedly asked to make room for staff who were shelving the meat. However, once the staff had finished stocking the reduced price area, customers then descended on it, jostling against one another and grabbing meat products to take to the till. No injuried were reported after the event.
The increase cost of importing food is pushing the price of food up in the UK. The most recent rise follows three years of falling figures since 2014. Analysis company Kantar has signalled that some respite may be on the way for UK shoppers, as inflation forecast is set to drop below 2% in the first quarter next year. The British Retail Consortium (BRC), the body representing UK retailers, has been applying pressure to the UK government, highlighting the risks of a no-deal Brexit on UK food prices.
Despite what media reports may tell you, the Cannes film festival is all biz and very little show. True, the Carlton hotel has huge Matrix posters draped down the front as well as a platform on the lawn where, at regular intervals, two Terminator robots come out of opposite little houses to do battle - which would be impressive were it not so reminiscent of a cyber version of Trumpton. But over the years all the sparkle and pizzazz have been removed.
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".
