David Cameron is set to announce a string of new powers that are seen by many as a challenge to our basic civil liberties. This sentence from the Tory leader is particularly chilling:Well, in simple terms: obeying the law will no longer be enough to be enough to ensure you escape retribution by the authorities.
There is always at least one person who links arms and dances as the clock strikes midnight marking a new year – but doesn’t actually know the words to Auld Lang Syne. The Scottish poem written by Robert Burns has a catchy tune, although the words just don’t seem to stick for some. However, fear not as The Mirror has dug out the lyrics and their meaning so you can impress your mates by belting it out at the very top of your voice in English and in the original format as well.
"Naa na na, la da na nah, nuh nuh hmmm, la la, da da" - these are not the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne, but that won't stop thousands of us from singing it like this as the clock strikes 12. The Scottish poem will be sung by people all around the world in the first minute of New Year's Day, but what are the actual lyrics to the song? Well, here are the lyrics to the first verse and chorus, and you can click the button underneath the image to translate it into modern English.
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".
