Having tried to ban or seek modifications to more than 100 hi-tech swimsuits on the grounds that they broke the rules by being technical aids, Fina caved into legal threats just a few weeks prior to the World Championships currently taking place in Rome. However, the new rule now says from 2010 only suits made from "textiles" will be permitted, though that term has yet to be defined.
Follow thedailybung on Twitter. Trust us, there's literally nothing better on the rest of the internet...England general manager Franco Baldini will have plenty to talk about around the FA HQ water cooler today after Chelsea captain John Terry called him to discuss his future following the News of the World revelations surrounding his 'colourful' private life.
Follow thedailybung on Twitter. Trust us, there's literally nothing better on the rest of the internet... If there is a good time to be revealed in the national press as having visited a brothel (which of course there isn’t) Avram Grant might reflect that it is now. With the brouhaha surrounding John Terry and Portsmouth on to a 37th owner this season, the Israeli’s trip to a local knocking shop receives less attention today than otherwise it might. Though not in his own home you would imagine.
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".
