VIDEO Manchester’s ‘baby grand’ hotel just got grander. King Street Townhouse, one of Eclectic Hotels’ quartet of bijou boutique hotels across the city, has launched The Cellars, a brand new and exclusive private dining area beneath its unique, brick vaulted basement ceiling. The transformation of the cellar – listed in its own right by Historic England – includes a luxurious cinema room and a wine cellar.
Apparently, human beings can survive for three minutes without air, three days without water, three weeks without food and just three months without football. That’s probably why the new season kicks off on Friday, just 80 days after the end of the last one. Any longer and many people would probably be suffering severe withdrawal symptoms. And opening in time before the new season kicks off is the latest Cafe Football on the ground floor of the National Football Museum.
When Chris Froome stepped on to the podium on the Champs Elysees on Sunday having won the Tour de France for the fourth time, he received a champagne reception and a cheque for almost half a million pounds in front of an audience of thousands, with millions more watching on TV. He deserves every penny. He had cycled 2,200 miles over a gruelling three-week period. But the furthest he had to cycle in a day was 139 miles.
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
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".
