Gogglebox returned for its 11th series tonight (February 23) on Channel 4. But it seems that viewers were badly missing Chris Butland-Steed, who announced that he would be leaving the show before its 2018 premiere. Chris has been part of the sofa series for five years along with his former partner Stephen Webb. Still, it was Stephen's mum Pat who replaced him and it looks like it'll take viewers a bit of time to get used to the new pairing.
Since that first wail in a Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer last October, people have been obsessed with the Porgs. So much so that one fan even recreated the franchise's theme tune using only the sound of Porgs. We've already had an explanation of why they were included, with Lucasfilm Story Group's Leland Chee saying that we'd seen creatures flying around at the end of The Force Awakens, so they wanted to "just own the fact that there are birds on this island".
Black Eyed Peas star Fergie performed the US national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game 2018 on Sunday (February 18). But it appeared that her attempt to mix things up a little with a jazzier version didn't go according to plan, after receiving some rather harsh criticism from fans. The singer has now apologised for slowing the song down, saying that she was trying something new but clearly it didn't strike the right tone.
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".
