The official shorthand for the Prince of Wales is PoW. Is he royal prisoner or prince? I’m told by those in the know that Charles appreciates the irony of those initials, for nobody is more conscious of his gilded cage than the heir to the throne. The prince once complained to the television presenter Selina Scott, the Diana lookalike with whom he had a mild flirtation, that he envied her for not having her life “mapped out . . . as far as you can see”.
Comrades! A historic decision was taken last week at a meeting of the Communist Party of Britain just a day or so after the Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter were poisoned in Salisbury. The party has thrown the full force of its numbers — well, all of its 800 members — behind Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party.
Dawn was breaking over the ancient city, granting its golden benediction on the time-worn stone. Kashi - "the luminous one" or "city of the light", now best known as Varanasi - was starting to stir. We moved quietly, just the gentle plish of oars on water as the boatman rowed us along the Mother Ganga. A flock of birds swooped over the rooftops as bells began to chime for early morning rituals.
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".
