The John Lewis Christmas advert signals the official start of Christmas. For most, anyway. The phenomenon of the big budget, tear-jerking, totes emoshÂ Christmas advert began in 2011 with The Long Wait. Remember? It was about a cute little boy impatient for Christmas Day so he could give his parents a gift. Since then, other brands have followed withÂ similarlyÂ heart string-yanking ads, but the John Lewis ad is still the most highly anticipated of the year.
Emma Watson arrived in Los Angeles last week to begin filming Bling Ring and now she’s been joined by the oh-so-handsome Gavin Rossdale. The 46-year-old husband of Gwen Stefani got to work on the Sofia Coppola- directed film about a group of teenagers who burgled the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan between October 2008 to August 2009.
With vegetables fresh from the hotel garden and rosé so delicious you’ll never be able to stomach a glass of pub house wine again, L'Hostellerie de l'Abbaye de la Celle is a foodie fantasy come to life. Where it it? An hour outside of Nice, nestled in the tiny, sleepy village of La Celle and next door to a beautiful 12th century abbey.
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".
