KFC chiefs from American have flown in to the UK for crisis talks with bosses over its chicken shortage. Senior execs landed in the UK as almost 450 restuarants across the UK remained closed this morning, according to The Daily Mirror. An issue with KFC's new delivery firm - DHL - has left tons of chicken stranded and could be costing the firm up to £1million per day.
THE Chicken Connoisseur has urged fried chicken fans to "keep calm" during KFC's restaurant closures. Over 400 branches of the fast-food chain remain closed this morning, with the possibility of the delivery cluck-up dragging on for up to a month. Last night, the YouTube blogger - real name Elijah Quashie - took time out of filming to plug the Chicken2Me app.
AN "irresponsible" Aldi Christmas ad for alcohol featuring the animated Kevin the Carrot has been banned for appealing strongly to children. The television ad, one in the supermarket's 12-part festive campaign, showed a computer-generated image of a carrot which began with it saying "I see dead parsnips." This was followed by a voice-over rhyme that ended: "There were a few spirits that cold Christmas night.
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".
