Queen of Mean Anne Robinson has finally admitted Scotland was the Weakest Link. The 73-year-old quit the successful quiz back in 2011 claiming she wanted to focus on other projects, including a second book based on her diaries. But as she prepares to return for a special Children in Need celebrity version of the show, she admits it was the move from London to Glasgow to record it that made her decide to leave it after 11 years.
The Ayoub Sisters have made their first video and will release it on Remembrance Day this Sunday. But Record readers will get the chance to see it first, 24 hours before it’s seen by the rest of the world. The Ayoub Sisters – aka Sarah and Laura Ayoub – are a classically-trained, Scottish-Egyptian duo who were spotted by world-famous music producer Mark Ronson after they uploaded a cover of his hit song ‘Uptown Funk’ to YouTube and he asked them to re-record it for the BRIT Awards.
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has tried to ease the torment over his friend’s cocaine-related death – by training the man’s son. Fourteen years ago, David Dempsey fell 40ft to his death after a bad reaction to drugs. The 31-year-old Glasgow-born father of three had helped Ramsay’s Amaryllis restaurant win Glasgow ’s only Michelin star and the protégé had been appointed head chef at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea.
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".
