It might not be the first place that springs to mind when you’re thinking where to bag a Black Friday bargain, but Lidl has announced it’s taking part for the first time – and it’s got some seriously impressive offers. The discount supermarket has gone full force with its offerings, slashing the price on practically everything by up to 75%. Food-wise, there's £3 wine, cheap Champagne and massively discounted Tomahawk steaks, reports the Mirror. There’s even a huge 7kg leg of Serrano ham included.
If you are planning on making a big purchase in the run up to Christmas, you’ll be wanting to keep a close eye online and in stores as Black Friday deals are starting to be revealed. But some stores have already released this year’s offers in a bid to beat competition as more and more brands than ever take part in the relatively new phenomenon.
Bristol’s wonderfully wintry Après Bar opens its doors today and after a sneak peek around, we can confirm it’s officially the cosiest place in the city. Millennium Square has been transformed into a Christmas-lovers’ paradise, and at the heart of it is the pop-up Après bar which has returned for a second year. But this year, it’s bigger and better than before, with a secret back ‘snug’ room which you could easily be fooled into thinking was actually in the alps.
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".
