More than 100 complaints have been lodged with the Advertising Standards Authority for Ireland (ASAI)The Advertising Standards Authority for Ireland (ASAI) has asked the public not to make any more complaints over an advert describing cow’s milk as “plant-based”. More than 100 complaints have been lodged since the industry-funded National Dairy Council (NDC) launched its €1.5m Complete Goodness campaign last week.
The press ombudsman and Press Council of Ireland have rejected a complaint by Ray Bates against an article that called the retired University College Dublin meteorology professor a “climate contrarian”. John Gibbons, an environmental campaigner, referred to Bates in an article in Village magazine in June. Bates complained that the piece accused him of being a “climate-change denier” and “not a bona-fide practising expert in climate science”.
Shoppers should not have to travel to Ikea, say politicians COLIN KEEGANFans of Billy bookcases who dread the thought of trudging through Ikea’s north Dublin superstore can breathe a sigh of relief: the Swedish home furnishing giant is promising to provide online shopping in Ireland in the coming weeks. In fact, it may be forced to do so.
@girlabouttownie Thanks Lisa, glad it's not just me! Sometimes I wonder is it a peculiarly Irish thing that everyone seems to consider themselves a property market oracle. Good luck with your house hunting!
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".
