You are being nudged towards an electric car. A subsidy here, an extra cost for driving your old banger there — soon we’ll all be asking if cars that have a plug instead of a fuel tank are the answer. The T-charge, introduced in London last week to make drivers of “toxic” older cars pay £10 a day on top of the £11.50 congestion charge, is the latest tax to prod Britain in the direction of Norway, where electric cars and hybrids accounted for more than 60% of new vehicles sold last month.
It was March 2015. Smoke was rising from Kids Company under a magnifying glass held by a determined journalist called Miles Goslett, and I was asked by The Sunday Times to get Kids Company’s perspective on an allegation of fraud against the charity, made by a widow in her seventies named Joan Woolard. That is how I met Camila.
Shaun Greenhalgh says he drew La Bella Principessa in 1978, based on a ‘bossy’ girl who worked at a Bolton supermarket checkout (Priv.Coll.& Lumiere)IT IS the £100m question that the art world cannot answer. Is the pensive young woman in Renaissance dress a sitter for Leonardo da Vinci? Or is she really Sally the shop girl from Bolton? Experts say a chalk and ink drawing of a 15th-century Italian woman is a lost da Vinci worth millions.
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".
