With a quick whisk and a handful of vanilla seeds, the yoghurt at 26 Grains in Neal’s Yard is transformed into a puffed-up mousse, far removed from the usual pots of the white stuff. This yoghurt becomes a headline ingredient, beyond its usual status as a base or a side to take the edge off more dominant flavours.
If Deliveroo founder Will Shu likes you, he will express that through food. One of his tricks is to find out when his friends or colleagues are due home and arrange for their dinner to arrive at the same time. Sometimes he’ll even bring it round himself. Shu still delivers one order a week to keep in touch with what it’s like to be “a rider” — the cyclists who busy Londoners have come to rely on since the app was founded in 2013 to keep the city fed and running. Is he ever recognised?
In Sally Potter’s new film The Party, out today, Cillian Murphy plays a banker who arrives at a nice terraced house, charges straight to the bathroom and begins furiously snorting cocaine. It spirals from there into a darkly comic takedown of polite middle-class society where politicians and academics exchange searingly bitchy insults as the vol-au-vent appetisers burn.
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".
