It is pretty hard to get a decent interview with Serena Williams. Not that she's a bad interviewee - far from it - she's incredibly complex, sassy and interesting. However, the world's number one tennis player is quite protected by the tennis authorities - and pre-Wimbledon, you're lucky to get two questions.
If you are a regular viewer of Sky TV, you may have noticed I have not been presenting the breakfast news this week. The reason? I've been having my hair done - over three days, in three different salons. Before you think I've totally lost it, yes I know it's extravagant.
Jacquie Beltrao was diagnosed with breast cancer last Christmas When she lost her hair to chemo, she had a replacement treatment The 48-year-old returns to presenting sports on Sky this week By Jacquie Beltrao It was at the end of a bedtime yoga stretch, as I brought my hands to my chest, that I felt it: a small pea-sized lump on the inside of my right breast.
The scariest thing about Andy Murray's semi-final opponent today apart from his size (he's 6ft 8ins) and his massive serve (he's served more aces than anyone else this Wimbledon and about 30 more than Murray) is that he is young and he has nothing to lose.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
