Whether you’re Scottish or not, Burns Night is a great opportunity to imbrace some poetry and singing, and tuck into a healthy dose of whisky and some delicious haggis. If you haven’t taken part in Burns Night before, the evening celebrates the birth of poet Robert Burns and is a celebration of all things 'Rabbie Burns.'
The Sunday roast is a classic British meal. And it’s not just a popular meal, it is downright essential. With grey skies looming down on us for too many days of the year, where would we be without roast potatoes? How could we get through a British winter without gravy? How could we leave the comfort of our duvets without the promise of a Yorkshire pudding? Quite simply, we couldn’t. And in Bath, we have a myriad of great pubs and restaurants which serve up some stonking Sunday dishes.
We are edging closer to the end of January, the days are thinking about getting longer and pay day is in sight without a pair of binoculars– but let’s face it, none of us are having a ball right now. It’s just that time of year. So if the thought of having a luxury spa session and massage, without having to pay a single penny, sounds like the best idea since McVities decided to blend biscuit and chocolate to make a chocolate digestive, then you are in for a treat.
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".
