Up: Wellness tonicsAccording to Whole Foods Market, sales of wellness tonics are booming, and after a hike for kombucha of more than 100 per cent in the six months up to June, it has put the fermented green or black tea on tap at its stores in Kensington and Piccadilly, London.
Our shopping habits have changed and we are now far more likely to shop around between supermarkets CAMERA PRESSIt is possible to derive great pleasure from the knowledge that Michel Roux Jr concurs with your belief that a particular own brand item is as good, if not better, than a more expensive big brand one. Joy can also be experienced when a self-opinionated food critic is unable to differentiate a cheap blended whisky from a 12-year-old single malt.
You know the sort of scene. Having raced on horseback across the rugged landscape, the windswept, scar-faced hero returns to his cosy Cornish cottage. And momentarily, you fantasise about hunkering down in Ross Poldark’s nook. Or perhaps the protagonist is pondering the identity of a killer on the steps of his little seaside shack. And instead of the plot, you find yourself lost in the sunset vista afforded by a beach house in West Bay.
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".
