New Year, New You! It’s the tired time old mantra we all love to hate, but just can’t help but give into. January is, and always has been, the month most of us choose to devote to self-help and self-love. It’s the time we strive to get our lives in order.
Forget the boring bacon butty or the old smoked salmon and croissant combo. Go all out this Christmas and wow your guests with a brunch like no other…This is a guide to ‘Sleigh’in; Christmas Day BrunchThis is oh so easy to make and with its sweet and salty taste it’s sheer perfection. Piled on top of some fluffy waffles it’s a real winner. Pour the maple sugar into another shallow frying pan. Take each strip of bacon and dunk it into the maple syrup, then the brown sugar.
It’s a tradition that has long reigned in our household and one that despite our ages never gets old. Ever since we were tiny tots my Mother has dressed my sister and I in matching pyjama sets on Christmas Eve. Now 28 and 24, we still partake in the ritual with the utmost enthusiasm and look forward to posing in front of the tree in them every year. Bundled in our new PJ’s we snuggle on the couch, sipping festive drinks and eating mince pies, while we watch our all-time favourite Christmas movies.
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".
