It's all handmade grub at this Italian restaurant - and the prices won't result in open-wallet surgeryNEVER buy a pair of tights for a mermaid. Don’t stand up in a canoe. Always sit at the back of a plane — when did you last hear about one REVERSING into a mountain? Don’t eat yellow snow. Never buy a second-hand yo-yo from a dwarf. And, whatever you do, NEVER take a sleeping tablet at the same time as a laxative. Those have always been my top tips, dear reader, but here’s a new one for 2018.
Now he’s in Mexico, hands up the Rangers fans desperate for Donald Trump to build that wall so he can’t get back outCLUB legend Jimmy Nicholl back at Ibrox, £2m flop Carlos Pena punted on loan to Mexico and Dundee United horsed 6-1 by Falkirk. Could this week have got any better for the Rangers fans? The Govan faithful would have been shocked, however, by the image of Pena wiping his nose on his Rangers shorts.
Columnist Tam Cowan vowed that 2018 would be the year to exercise more and to ditch his worst habitHAPPY New Year, folks! For my first column of 2018, I thought an appropriate topic would be resolutions. But then I remembered we’re now 12 days into January — so I trust all your good intentions have already been kicked into touch? I had a couple of New Year resolutions: to try a bit of exercise and to stop biting my nails. So I decided to combine the two last Sunday by going ten-pin bowling.
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".
