Well, isn’t this just the pay disparity to end all pay disparities? Claire Foy, award-winning lead (yes, LEAD), actor in the much-admired Netflix series The Crown , was paid less than the Duke of Edinburgh. No, not the real Duke of Edinburgh – the screen version played by Matt Smith. Despite always remaining one step behind The Queen, it seems he was well ahead of her once the fruits of the actors’ labours were deposited in their respective bank accounts.
I have to say, the first time I was reduced to tears by Sainsbury’s was when, following a long, hard, stressful day, I reached the checkout with a full trolley of goods and realised I’d left my purse somewhere. The second time was reading Doron Salomon’s tweets about his mum , a proud Sainsbury’s employee. In her mid-50s, Mrs Salomon was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. At that point many employers would have searched for excuses to terminate her employment.
Former BBC Breakfast host Bill Turnbull is battling terminal prostate and bone cancer. The 62-year-old has spoken out about his ordeal in a bid to encourage men to get checked after admitting he hadn't visited a GP in four years before his diagnosis. The radio DJ says he was 'shell shocked' when his doctor delivered the heartbreaking news he had the disease.
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".
